Gatwick Airport appoints Grayling ahead of multi-billion investment programme

Gatwick Airport has appointed Grayling to handle its communications, as it undergoes a multi-million pound transformation.

Appointed following a competitive pitch process, Grayling will promote Gatwick as a world-class facility following the transformation plans.

A £1.2bn capital investment programme, completed in March 2014, formed much of the transformation, with a further investment of £1bn proposed for further improvements between now and 2019.

Sarah Baranowski, head of corporate affairs at Gatwick Airport, said: “Gatwick is changing and the huge improvements made over the last five years will be matched by further significant investment as the airport continues its transformation.

“Grayling is joining us in a record-breaking year of growth, and we look forward to their support across consumer and trade media to help communicate the continued success and transformation of the airport.”

Grayling’s international and network managing director, Susan Hutchinson, will lead the account.
