Most growth on Asian destinations

As more intercontinental destinations were added to the Gatwick flight schedule, more passengers find their way through the second largest London Airport. Especially since the capacity of Heathrow has reached its limit. The biggest passenger increase was noticed on the Gatwick route to Hong Kong, growing with an overwhelming 75(!) percent. Other passengers were escaping the winter weather and flying off to the sun in St. Lucia and Mauritius.
