Card readers went live at Gatwick back in January as did the Oyster system, the launch of these systems means that a single ticketless system links Gatwick with the whole of Greater London, so this means that people can now benefit from effortless connections to Greater London from the airport.
Now that these changes have been applied to the train lines, it means that there will be a decrease in miss departures due to passengers not having to wait to buy a tickets because now they can simply scan their contactless card or Oyster card at the station barriers.
These changes come on top of the increase in rail capacity being delivered to Gatwick as a result of committed and planned projects to improve the quality of the rail services. The improvements being carried out at Gatwick will also include a second runway that should be ready by 2020.
