AN Airport has issued a warning to holidaymakers ahead of this week’s rail strikes.

Gatwick Airport is asking people to seek alternative transport options when arriving and departing from the airport.

It comes ahead of planned protests by the RMT union on Wednesday 27 July, which will affect GTR services, including the Gatwick Express.

A Gatwick spokesman said: “We strongly advise you not to use public transport to get to and from the airport – and arrange private transport if possible. Allow extra time for your journey.

“Only a limited number of trains will run from Gatwick Airport to and from London Brighton – these days from 7:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., services are not provided outside these hours.

“Further disruption is also likely on 28 July 2022 as the network may not reopen until after 7am the following day.”

Alternative modes of transport will be busier than usual but include:

Book your airport parking in advance as our car parks will be very busy. We have increased the number of available parking spaces.

If you plan to use an airport pick-up service, you should make sure they have a good reputation on Trustpilot, Trip Advisor or any other reliable means.

Gatwick Cars Ltd is our official taxi provider and can be found outside the North and South Terminals.

Metrobus offers local bus services, National The Oxford Bus Company Express and Airline offer bus services from the North and South Terminals.

A number of car rental companies operate from the North and South Terminals.
