Gatwick Airport Reviews

Gatwick Airport initially started as an aerodrome back in the late 1920s; the first terminal was built in 1935. Though, the major development of the airport was made in the 1950s. Now, Gatwick Airport is known to be the second-largest airport in London. Today, let’s discover more about the airport’s origins.

Aesthetics

Gatwick Airport Reviews-foodWith the airport that serves more destinations in the United Kingdom, LGW or London Gatwick Airport had carefully prepared for the number of passengers that travel through them every day. Their information centers are handled by a multi-lingual staff and they’re operational for 24 hours. This  is one  of the ways of knowing the whereabouts of the airport’s facilities.

There are several restrooms located throughout the airport, and showers are available at the Regus Express Business Lounge. There are also free charging ports at the airport, just to keep your devices fully charged. To stay connected? WiFi connection is free for the first two 45 minutes. Because, it will require you to sign up again after the first 45-minute consumption.Gatwick Airport Reviews-shops

Since the airport is open for 24 hours, they tolerate overnight travellers. But, it should be expected that the most available spot to sleep on is the floor, though their benches have armrests. Food establishments are not all open for 24 hours as well; they operate depending on the stores’ varying schedules. The same goes for the stores, but three of the duty-free shops are open all-day long.

Directions

Gatwick Airport Reviews-national-expressThe cheapest way to get to and from London and LGW is by airport bus services. But, there are also other means of transport, such as the National Express which approximately takes 2 hours’ travel time. Taxis can be more accessible because they can take you to London in just an hour. If by means of driving, the airport is directly accessible from the M23 motorway.

Location – Traffic – Service

Gatwick Airport Reviews-british-airways
Gatwick Airport is about 28 miles south of London. LGW operates as the hub for British Airways, and had successfully accommodated 40,269,087 passengers last year. The public international airport has more destinations served in the United Kingdom compared to other London airports. Gatwick Airport’s top destinations are Barcelona, Dublin, Malaga, Amsterdam, Madrid, Dubai, Geneva, Copenhagen, Alicante, and Faro. LGW has only 1 runway and 2 terminals.

Airport/Terminal Map
Gatwick Airport Reviews-map

Gatwick Airport Reviews and News

We tried to read 503 London Gatwick Airport reviews posted on Skytrax, and the only thing we noticed was that travellers were not that happy with LGW’s services. Majority of the feedback are complaining about the airport’s long and unorganized lanes. One reviewer even said:

“I think that Gatwick airport is one of the worst I use as a chauffeur. Short stay car park never fully open and very difficult to navigate. No heating in arrivals. Even writing this the phone signal connection is bad. I can’t believe they think they should have an extra runway as they can’t even manage what they have now.”

Though, on a positive note, a plan of creating a link rail between Gatwick and Heathrow Airport is being on project and they will consider it being called “Heathwick” once it’s done.

Conclusion

Despite the low rating online with 4/10, Gatwick Airport had been more than keen on managing their ways to fix their flaws. They’ve been continuously working on developments and adjustments for their future in the travel industry. It was never easy to accommodate thousands of passengers on a daily basis. But, even so, LGW is on the 45th rank on the top 100 airports in the world.

Beijing Capital International Airport Reviews and News

After we checked on 216 Beijing Capital International Airport reviews online, we found out that the airport got an overall rating of 4/10 from several customers. One recent review posted was actually a complaint when the customer said, “Unhelpful and rude staff, horrible restaurants at Beijing Capital Airport. Long and inefficient lines for security checks. The airport could be cleaner too. Overall experience quite negative, especially considering that we are talking of the airport of the capital city of the country that wants to be the global power.”

Due to capacity limitations at the current airport, an additional airport facility is planned for the Daxing area, scheduled to open for business in 2018.

As we all know, China is the most populated country and they also hold the most densely populated city. With these facts alone, it makes us aware that it’s not easy to run Beijing Capital International Airport. However, they were still able to be part of the Top 100 Airports in 2016. Kudos to BJS!
