GATWICK UNVEILS FIVE-YEAR CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT PROGRAMME
Gatwick has unveiled its new five-year Capital Investment Programme (CIP) which highlights more investment in automation and technology as an enabler of sustainable growth.
According to the UK gateway, new initiatives include robotic parking and automated boarding technology, which will speed up boarding and give passengers more choice about how they spend their time.
GatwickТs total investment since 2009, combined with this new five-year plan rises to £3.21 billion.
The single biggest project to be delivered within the next five years is the Pier 6 western extension which will offer over half a million more North Terminal passengers the opportunity to embark and disembark their aircraft via a jetty-served stand, as well as improved gate waiting areas.
The design incorporates automated boarding technology which uses biometrics to process passengers through e-gates straight onto the aircraft.
Х Main runway technology optimisation Ц new technology such as Time-Based Flow Management, which is already deployed at other UK airports offers the potential to increase the capability of the main runway, creating opportunities for resilience and growth.
Х Rapid Exit TaxiwayЦa new taxiway which allows aircraft to vacate the runway at the optimum location, enabling the best usage and operational performance.
Х Robotic car parking Ц a trial will begin this autumn in South Terminal offering passengers all the benefits of valet parking, without the need to surrender their keys, and making more efficient use of existing car park space.
Nicolas Notebaert, CEO of VINCI Concessions and President of VINCI Airports, said: УBelonging to the worldТs most extensive and diversified network of airports is a unique opportunity for each one to get inspiration and capture the best airport management worldwide.
УWe look forward to participating in delivering this great project at Gatwick over the coming years, which is consistent with our global vision of contributing to a more accessible sustainable and passenger-focused experience.Ф
