AIRPORT OF THE WEEK:ATC now features an airport each week! This airport will remain open throughout the entire week except for during the FNF. Each airport featured is one of 2017's busiest airports.

London Gatwick is located 30 miles from Central London and is the UK’s second busiest airport! Gatwick Airport manages to move 45M passengers each year with only a single runway.
