Gatwick Expansion

I’m sure you’ve all heard about the Heathrow expansion, but did you know that Gatwick are expanding too?
I can’t find the report but Gatwick said they were expanding whether Heathrow were or not.

Do you have any evidence of this? I’m pretty sure it’s not as simple as that.

I have found in wikipedia several proposals of expansion, let me look for more

There is a proposal for a new runway Gatwick and two different proposals for Heathrow. Last week the government announced their support for a third runway at Heathrow but what I can’t understand is that Capt.teddy is saying that Gatwick will expand whether Heathrow does or not.

I’m trying to find the report

It’s still baffling to know that London has 5 airports within a close proximity, but yet still need to expand 3 of them.

Ryanair’s CEO Michael O Leary is proposing 3 new runways at Gatwick, Heathrow and Stansted (and I agree with him) but the chances of that happening are practically 0.

Is this not a duplicate? I believe @Thomas_Oehrling created a thread on the expansion of Gatwick/Heathrow.

Unless it got closed
