Looking back at Gatwick Airport
Gatwick Airport is built on the land that was initially developed as an aerodrome in the 1920s. A small flyers club named Surrey Aero Club was used by flying enthusiasts in 1930, and this club was the seed of Gatwick Airport. However, this club did not last very long. Later in 1934, Gatwick became a public aerodrome where air services were regularly provided. At this time, it was also being used as a relief aerodrome. In the 1950s, the British architectural firm Yorke Rosenberg Mardall started to design the Airport in the way we see it now. Gatwick went on to become the first airport in the world with a direct railway link and is presently the tenth busiest airport in Europe, having flown over 78 million passengers in the year 2017.
