Government announce boost to Gatwick’s infrastructure
I Love meet and greet, one of most experienced airport valet parking teams in the UK, is claiming that some customers will not be receiving a true valet parking experience this Easter.
The details come as part of the National Infrastructure Plan, and highlights the importance of Gatwick’s role in British air travel, along with the need to provide a first-rate railways station for all passengers.The airport currently provides the quickest routes into the City and West End and connects directly to over 120 stations throughout London and the South East.
London Gatwick’s Chief Executive Officer, Stewart Wingate, said: “Gatwick currently has the highest percentage of passengers accessing the airport by rail of any UK airport and as we continue to grow the number of global routes served by legacy, charter and low cost airlines, the package of measures announced today will help us deliver a world-class passenger experience for Britons and visitors alike.”
This connectivity will grow further upon completion of the £53m project to improve Gatwick’s platform capacity in early 2014 and the introduction of the Thameslink franchise later in the same year.
However, the mooted improvements are set to disrupt festive travel to Gatwick as holidaymakers get set to jet off for a break over the Christmas period.
Consequently, those looking to avoid potential rail disruptions can travel to the airport in their own vehicle where I Love meet and greet are on hand to receive drivers at Gatwick’s North and South terminals.
