How busy is Gatwick usually?

How busy is Gatwick usually? I’m planning a flight and uh, is Gatwick busy?
Thanks in advance,

@Azumayay

As for today? It probably won’t be busy as it’s not in the ATC Schedule. It’s local neighbor Heathrow would most likely be more busy.

It can be, I’d say normally there may be an aircraft or two on the ground or in the immediate airspace. Heathrow kinda sucks up all the traffic for that area, unless EGKK is featured in the ATC schedule

No, just in general

It’s dead if it isn’t featured, but hey, at least it’s the busiest one runway airport in the real world

Usually it’s not busy. Like Will said, you’d only see a couple aircraft a most.

I think there may be a sliver of residual traffic from Heathrow today, but wouldn’t count on much of anything.

Enjoy your flight!

Personally I wish Gatwick could have more attention but that’s just my bias opinion. 😛 In general there is usually a healthy amount though.

Hope you enjoy your flight into this great airport!
