Gatwick Airport LGW

Gatwick is Europe’s leading airport for point-to-point flights and the world’s busiest single runway airport. Since March 2016, ANSL has partnered with the airport to provide aerodrome air traffic control, air traffic engineering services, emergency and alerting services and meteorological services.

In 2017, we handled over 285,000 aircraft movements carrying over 45 million passengers, with 950 movements on one day in August 2017 – a new world record for a single runway airport. More recently, our focus has been on the impact of the COVID pandemic and the safe and orderly management of air traffic in times of fluctuating traffic levels as well as the wellbeing of our staff.
