Given its West Sussex position, Gatwick Airport effectively supplies large areas of the south and west of England. Given that it’s the only London airport positioned south of London, it serves Kent, southerly cities like Bournemouth, Portsmouth and Southampton and cities in the west like Bristol. Its easy access for those positioned south of the capital makes it an excellent alternative to smaller city airports and given Gatwick’s diverse offerings of long and short haul flights, it’s no surprise that many travel from cities in southern England to Gatwick for their flights.
