18.05.18 AIRPORT NEWS A survey of England's busiest railway stations has rated them for passenger satisfaction, and to no-one's surprise, Gatwick Airport station was rated worst of the 56 surveyed. The whole route into London fared badly, with Clapham Junction 3rd worst, London Victoria 6th worst, and East Croydon 10th worst!

18.05.18 AIRPORT NEWS Gatwick Airport has often trumpeted the 'PR triumph' that is the claim that it is the worlds busiest single-runway international airport, now challenged by Mumbai, apparently. More noteworthy is that it is now the 34th busiest (by passenger numbers) of any airport worldwide. Atlanta still leads the way, but there are some significant establishments behind Gatwick now, including Mexico City, Miami, Newark, Shanghai, Houston and Minneapolis amongst many others.
