London Gatwick Airport has launched a refreshed brand identity and vision, signaling its robust recovery from the pandemic and setting the stage for its next growth phase. The airport’s modernized branding acknowledges its proud past and emphasizes its status as a significant international gateway, while also highlighting its connection to the wider VINCI Airports network.
A customized experience based on the needs of all passengers
The airport’s vision is centered on providing a customized experience that meets the individual needs of all passengers, regardless of their journey. The vision is supported by a reinforced emphasis and investment in streamlining the airport experience, prioritizing ease, efficiency, and enjoyment. This will help passengers to have more time to shop, relax or check their work calls or emails.
The new program and its features
A multi-million-pound development program has been launched to complete the new brand and vision. The program includes the extension and modernization of departure lounges, creating more attractive spaces for passengers while taking into account the airport’s sustainability objectives.
The airport also aims to accelerate automation in check-in and boarding procedures, as well as implementing cutting-edge improvements in airfield technology. Gatwick Airport railway station will also undergo a multi-million-pound upgrade that is expected to be completed later this year.
Jonathan Pollard, London Gatwick’s Chief Commercial Officer, said that the launch of their new brand and refreshed vision is perfectly timed as the airport enters its second year of recovery from the global pandemic and prepares to embark on a promising growth phase.
