London Gatwick Airport, similar to Heathrow, provides easy access to the UK’s highway system, making it a convenient option for travellers looking to travel to London and South-East England by vehicle or bus. In addition, travellers can take advantage of the direct rail service from the South Terminal to Central London, which operates 24 hours a day and takes less than 30 minutes.

This direct access to the UK’s highway system and efficient rail service makes Gatwick Airport a convenient option for travellers looking to explore London and the surrounding areas.

This is part of the airline’s ongoing effort to increase its market share on international routes by putting itself on the global aviation map. The continuous improvement of operations is one of Vihaan’s main pillars.
