London Gatwick Airport is the UK’s 2nd largest airport, after Heathrow, and the busiest single-runway airport and the 6th busiest airport in the world. Hosting 33 million passengers annually, the airport serves more than 200 destinations in over 90 countries. Gatwick Airport began life as a small flying club back in 1930, and gained its first public license issued by the Air Ministry in 1934, which allowed the Airport to be used by commercial aircraft. It is located in West Sussex, just north of Crawley, and around 29 miles (46km) South of central London, directly linked to the M23 motorway at junction 9 and to the A23 London-Brighton road.
