London Gatwick is to temporarily close its North Terminal from Wednesday 1 April 2020.

All existing airport operations will be consolidated in the South Terminal.

The airport’s single runway will also only be used for scheduled flights between 14:00 and 22:00 each day.

The runway will remain available for emergency landings and diversions outside of these hours.

The North Terminal is currently used by airlines such as easyJet, Emirates, Qatar Airways, Tui and Virgin Atlantic. easyJet is currently operating a skeleton schedule. Virgin Atlantic has temporarily transferred all operations to London Heathrow.

The few flights remain operating by these airlines will transfer to the South Terminal. This is currently used by airlines such as Aer Lingus, British Airways, Ryanair and Vueling.

This arrangement will continue for at least one month. London City airport has also closed until the end of April at the earliest. London Heathrow airport is expected to shortly announce terminal closures.

Given airlines have today, Friday 27 March, been given a slot alleviation until October 2020, schedules are likely to remain substantially reduced until the autumn.
