Terminal Information – Departing

Air Europa, Monarch and Norwegian all depart from the south terminal. British Airways, easyJet and Thomson fly from the north terminal. If you're planning on arriving at Gatwick by train, and your flight is leaving from the north terminal, give yourself a little extra time to navigate the airport. The train station is in the south terminal and you will need to take the free inter-terminal shuttle to reach your departure gate.

Both the south and north terminals have a huge array of shops and restaurants to choose from. Both offer free Wi-Fi for 45 minutes. When you fly to Spain you can take advantage of tax free shopping at the airport. There are plenty of high street fashion stores as well as luxury stores specialising in premium spirits, perfume and make-up. Dining at the airport is varied, whether you're looking for a quick coffee, a plate of pub grub or a proper sit-down meal. Jamie Oliver has three outposts in the north terminal: Union Jack's Bar, Jamie's Italian, and Jamie's Bakery.
