Gatwick to London plane due in 21.45  (4 Answers)

Hi, Can someone please help me as this is doing my head in! We land at Gatwick at 21.45 and need to travel to York. What is the best way to go about this? Get into London and stay overnight in a cheap hotel close to Kings Cross and then set off the next morning. I take it the trains run around the clock, not knowing how long we may be held up in Immigration etc.

Thanks in advance.
Alexandra

Transferring from international flight at North Terminal to domestic flight at South Terminal  (4 Answers)

Hello, I am looking at booking a flight from Sydney, Australia to Newquay, Cornwall via Gatwick with 2 children and 3 checked-in bags (the children are 10&13 so can wheel their own luggage).

I have two connecting flight options with my Emirates flight, which lands at North Terminal at 7.20am:

1. Flybe from South Terminal at 9.30am
2. Flybe from South Terminal at 1.35pm.

Common sense is saying hang around for the 1.35pm flight but that's a long time to sit at Costa, especially after a 23-hour journey & with two tired children ... Do you think (providing the plane lands on time) that I'd have a good chance of making the 9.30am flight or would it be just too much of a rush?

Thanks in advance

Customs & Security Needed?  (4 Answers)

Hi everyone,

Two of us will be arriving at LGW via Norwegian from the US at 12:50, and our departing flight is scheduled for 14:15 with Easyjet, flying to France. I know, not the greatest idea. At this point, I'm wondering if you all could weigh in on what steps we'll need to go through between flights? Arriving in the south terminal, leaving from north. I read on Gatwick's website that it looks like we will not need to go through passport control or customs, but can anyone please confirm? And will we need to go through security?

Other info: We only have carry-ons, so no need to wait for checked baggage. We're doing online checkin and will have our boarding passes on hand. Our seats on Norwegian are right in front so hopefully we're one of the first ones off.

Thanks in advance for your help!

connecting at LGW with hand luggage only from international to domestic flight  (3 Answers)

I am connecting at Gatwick off an Alicante flight w1hich arrives Gatwick at 13.10. I am travelling with my 3 & 4 year old with hand luggage only (both my flights are with Easyjet) & my onward flight to the Isle of Man departs Gatwick at 14.20.
I guess I must clear passport control first but is there a flight connection desk so that I do not have to go through security again at Gatwick. I will already be in possession of my onward boarding cards.
Please advise.
Natalie

Does Gatwick Connect Service Save Any Time  (7 Answers)

I am self-connecting between two airlines through Gatwick on Tuesday, Sept. 27. First flight on Easyjet arrives from BCN at 8:35am in South Terminal. Second flight on Westjet departs to YYZ at 10:55 am also from South Terminal. This is only after Westjet made a schedule change, with the departure time now 2 hours earlier than originally scheduled when I bought the tickets.

LGW advertises Connect Service, where they will check your bag through to your destination for you, rather than having to queue up again at bag drop. Will this save me any time? Will it save me enough time to be able to still clear customs and go through security again to connect to the Westjet flight in 2 hours and 20 mins?

If not, then my only option is probably to change the YYZ departure flight to the next day? The Easyjet flight is the first one to land in the morning and Westjet only has one departure each day, so choices are very limited.

Is 2.5 hour window enough for connecting flight in Gatwick?  (11 Answers)

Hi, I have a flight going to arrive on London Gatwick on Oct. 8th at 11:50PM from Vancouver Canada. (I am a Canadian citizen)
I am looking for a connecting flight and there are 2 options for me.
One depart at 2:25PM and another one depart at 4:0PM.
My question is that would I be able to catch the 2:25PM flight?
I would need to go though UK custom, get my checked in baggages, then I can proceed to checkin with my next flight and go through security again.
Is it totally doable or am I testing my luck?
Thanks!

What time to arrive at Gatwick?  (3 Answers)

I am travelling to Menorca on 31st May with 2 kids and their father. Our flight is at 2.20pm (South Terminal) and we will be checking in online with one hold luggage which we will place in the bag drop. We were going to get the 11.12am train from London Bridge which arrives at Gatwick at 11.41am. We would also need to go to Boots after security to collect our order. Would this be ok, or will it be cutting it fine?

7 hour layover in Gatwick. London sightseeing?  (6 Answers)

I am arriving in gatwick on a Thursday at 13:10 from the USA on my way to Spain and have a 7 hour layover. I was thinking maybe grabbing some lunch and see the city for a couple of hours. I found a train that would drop me off at Victoria station in 30 min. I just don't know what would be a good time frame to book because I don't know how long would customs and immigration would take to let me out and and how long it would take to let me back in for my flight to Spain at 20:10. I have hand luggage so I don't have to worry about that.
