Gatwick urges flyers to plan ahead
Fri, 26 Oct, 2007
London Gatwick Airport has reminded its passengers they could save themselves a lot of hassle by planning ahead for their trips.
Airport officials, announcing that it was extremely busy last weekend with many people flying out to enjoy the half-term holiday, offered "three simple steps" to passengers.
These were to take one piece of hand luggage each, all liquids and gels smaller than 100ml to be placed in a clear plastic bag and once through security, everything bought can go on board.
"Passengers are also reminded that if their airline offers check-in either the day before they fly, self-service at the airport or online, they can go straight to security and then relax in the departure lounge," said the airport.
In addition, travellers may wish to book their airport parking well in advance, to minimise the stresses of what can be a tricky time trying to keep everything organised.
London Gatwick Airport was recently named as the Best UK Airport at the Travel Bulletin Awards.
