London Gatwick has achieved its busiest-ever start to a year for cargo in the first three months of 2019.
Long-haul growth contributed to another month of healthy cargo growth, 7.2 per cent quarter on quarter.
Airport CEO, Stewart Wingate said: “Gatwick’s year has started as we mean the rest of 2019 to go on. Our pioneering spirit at the airport is driving for success in both the short and long term.
“In the immediate period, we continue to innovate, enabling new and established airlines to grow to all parts of the world – including most recently a new service to Rio de Janeiro.
“Looking ahead to further opportunities, we will publish the final version of Gatwick’s masterplan later this year, outlining potential options for future growth.”
