The North Terminal Gatwick Airport

Use to book a North Terminal hotel

Following extensive work last year, the North Terminal has been extended so that Arrivals and Departures are now on two different levels making it easier for passengers to find their way around.

The new building is expected to accommodate up to 20 million passengers per year by 2020 and cost £73 million pounds. The brand new entrance to the terminal has two moving walkways and a lift to the new inter-terminal shuttle service.

With extra space and clear signs inside the building, passenger circulation has improved and reduced queuing time has made it possible for passengers to enjoy the many shops and facilities on offer at the North Terminal.

The Sofitel hotel is located at the North Terminal and provides an undercover walkway directly into the terminal building from the hotel lobby. The walk into the terminal will take about 5 minutes.
