Gatwick mulls use of emergency runway to boost airport capacity

Gatwick is investigating the potential of using its emergency runway to boost capacity, as it waits for the Government to consider its expansion plans. 

In minutes from a November meeting of the Gatwick Airport Consultative Committee, the airport’s chief executive Stewart Wingate said Gatwick will be looking at the capability of Gatwick’s main runway and the northern (maintenance/emergency) runway before looking at a new runway over the coming months.

As part of its planning for future growth, the airport will consider the possibility in its master plan showing how it intends to develop.
