Gatwick Airport Limited
Having produced Air Surface Access Strategy (ASAS) reports for both Heathrow and Stansted, it’s not surprising that we’re a bit specialised in this field. Our client, who had left Stansted for Gatwick, wanted us to carry on the good work. We were happy to obligue.
The strategy is fundamental to Gatwick’s long term success and a central part in their delivery of sustainable aviation. What made this special was the timeframe the strategy would cover – the first time one of these reports ran in sync with rail franchises.
What made it fun for us was second-guessing where technology would be in 2030. A workshop run by Arup produced some interesting insights into the future of surface transport to and from the airport – the Robo-taxi, Cloud Vision glasses, Verge concept phone and even Robotic parking.
We continue to monitor and update the strategy as some of these technologies get closer to fruition.
