Last update: 2nd September 2020
Our North Terminal is open for flight arrivals and departures and all flights to and from Gatwick are temporarily operating only from this terminal.
The North Terminal multi-storey car park is currently the main Short Stay car park for customers who are intending to park at Gatwick, or to pick-up / drop-off passengers travelling from the North Terminal.
The South Terminal multi-storey car park is remaining open for customers to park in the South Terminal and use the free inter-terminal shuttle service to reach the North Terminal. South Terminal Short Stay is a great value option is you’re away for more than a few days or if you have hand luggage only.
The North Terminal Long Stay car park has fully re-opened with a 24/7 bus service to the North Terminal building.
We are expecting the Valet parking service to remain closed through the rest of the summer. If you already have a pre-booking for Valet parking made earlier this year, your booking will be accepted at the Short Stay car park at no additional cost to you.
Our priority is to ensure that all our passengers and staff at the airport keep healthy and safe and follow the UK Government’s guidelines. There are four key things we would like you to do as you travel through the airport to protect yourselves and your fellow passengers. These are displayed throughout our car parks and terminals:
- Wear a face covering while travelling through Gatwick
- Maintain social distancing
- Wash your hands regularly
- Keep your hands clean on the go by using hand sanitiser
Please remember that you are required to follow government legislation and wear a face covering on all public transport. This includes our Long Stay shuttle buses.
Further details of Covid-19 safety measures are displayed below for each of our car park options.

Short Stay Parking
Our Short Stay car parks are located next to the terminal, providing quick and convenient direct access. There is no maximum stay duration and in addition to advance bookings the Short Stay North car parks remains open for drive-up customers who are intending to pick-up / drop-off travelling passengers.
As part of our COVID-19 special measures, the main touch points within the car parks, including Lifts, Trolley bays and Payment machines, are sanitised at regular intervals. Please follow all directional signage to make sure your movement around the car parks are as safe as possible.
We would encourage our customers to make any payments by credit / debit cards at the exit barriers rather than to queue at payment machines.
Customers parking in the South Terminal multi-storey car park can simply take the inter-terminal shuttle service to the North Terminal. It runs every few minutes 24/7 and has a transfer time of just two minutes.
We are operating a new COVID-secure process for Valet parking which has been specifically designed to keep our passengers and staff safe and healthy and to follow Government guidelines on social distancing. This includes the following new measures:

- We will ask you to wait inside your vehicle whilst we carry out the necessary checks to keep contact to a minimum
- Every vehicle will be sanitised before they are moved to secure storage
- We will also sanitise your keys and vehicle before you pick them up
Valet parking is the perfect, safe option for fast and easy access to the terminal. On return, your car will be waiting for you in the Valet Parking area in the Short Stay North car park.
Valet parking reopens on 3 October 2020.
Long Stay Parking
The North Terminal Long Stay car park is open with a 24/7 busing service to the North Terminal building.
