Gatwick Airport is delighted to be involved with Brighton & Hove Pride’s Carnival of Diversity for a third year.
In the last year we welcomed just over 40 million passengers through the airport, and with a direct 30 minute rail link it’s Brighton & Hove’s most accessible airport. We look forward to greeting Pride visitors flying through Gatwick to spend the weekend in the city for this international event.
The airport provides employment for around 21,000 people directly and supports a further 10,000 jobs in the region. This year Gatwick Airport was awarded the Gold Standard Investors in People award – jumping up three levels in just three years. Currently about 1,150 airport employees are from Brighton & Hove, from flight attendants to restaurant managers, and many of them will be there with their rainbow flags and whistles to celebrate Pride weekend.
