Historical Background of Gatwick Airport
Gatwick Airport is now situated on a land initially developed as an aerodrome in the 1920s. In 1933 the Air Ministry permitted commercial flights from this land, and in 1935 the first terminal named ‘The Beehive’ was built. Later between the 1950s and 1980s, the British architectural firm Yorke Rosenberg Mardall designed the airport buildings and changed the outlook of the site to a great extent. From the 1960s reputed airlines started working at Gatwick Airport, gradually leading the way for it to become the second busiest airport in the UK. It is presently the tenth busiest airport in the whole of Europe. In the year 2017, Gatwick Airport flew over 78 million passengers. Owing to the pandemic, Gatwick Airport had to cut down several jobs in August 2020, reducing the total workforce of the airport to 1,900.
