Arriving at London Gatwick Airport

- All arriving passengers will go through passport control, with the exception of domestic passengers who can go direct to baggage reclaim.

A few useful tips

- Gatwick is a silent Airport, therefore no announcements will be made, so please look at the flight information screens.

- The South Terminal has limited shops/restaurants prior to security checks.

- The North Terminal has shops/restaurants landside on the level below check in and also after security.

- North terminal boarding will be via an airbridge to the aircraft or by coaching to the aircraft on a remote stand.

- South terminal boarding will be via an airbridge or by steps or a combination of both.
