  • In June, Vietnam Airlines had chosen Gatwick Airport as its exclusive partner to launch direct flights to Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City. Flights commence this coming winter season creating trading links with South East Asian markets and opportunities for the 90,000 UK holidaymakers who travel to Vietnam each year. This latest announcement highlights Gatwick's continued progress in becoming London's airport of choice.
  • Gatwick also welcomes Lufthansa, who will launch double-daily flights to Frankfurt from 30 October.  The arrival of Lufthansa and its flights to Frankfurt - the largest financial centre in Germany and continental Europe - will help Gatwick build and strengthen its business travel offering. Over 50% of the seats on the Lufthansa flights from Gatwick are expected to be taken up by the business traveller.
