Gatwick Airport is spending £10 million improving its North Terminal departure lounge.

New flooring and seating with accessible power points is being added as part of the refurbishment, along with a sustainable planting scheme.

A new orientation zone with digital artwork and content will make it easier for passengers to experience the departure lounge, the airport said.

The project is already underway and is scheduled to be completed in early 2024.

It’s the biggest overhaul of the departure lounge since it opened in 1988 and is part of a wider multi-million pound development programme at the airport.

Gatwick is also revamping its train station.

Retail Director Rachel Bulford said: “The new features and layout will make the space easier for our passengers to find their way around and ensure they have a more enjoyable and efficient journey through the departure lounge.

“The varied seating areas, charging points and pleasant environment will also give passengers the freedom to spend more time doing what they want.

“It’s important that we create a unique sense of place for our passengers, not only through our retail and restaurant provision but also the look and feel of the departure lounge.”
