Launch of upgraded Gatwick shuttle welcomed by Air Southwest

Air Southwest has welcomed the launch of the new Gatwick shuttle.

Air Southwest has welcomed the launch of the new Gatwick shuttle, which allows passengers travelling between the North and South terminals to benefit from faster connections.

The £43 million service, construction of which had taken nine months, replaces the replacement bus service that had been in place while the new link was installed.

Since opening, Air Southwest passengers travelling by train to London have been able to arrive at the South Terminal, where the railway station is located, more quickly.

Mike Coombes, Air Southwest’s commercial director, said the link will mean that journeys between the North and South terminals are "faster and more comfortable".

"Gatwick’s inter-terminal shuttle service has been completely upgraded and the terminal stations have been transformed, creating a lighter, brighter and more welcoming environment," he explained.

The upgraded shuttle service forms part of a £1 billion enhancement at Gatwick, which is being implemented over the next three years.

Earlier this month, the airline teamed up with Jersey Tourism ahead of a new initiative promoting the island’s air links to Plymouth.
