Gatwick Airport began life in 1930 as a small enthusiast flying club (Surrey Aero Club) and was issued with its first public licence in 1934, which allowed the airport to be used by commercial aircraft.

In UK airport news, there was a decision to approve a plan to extend a runway at Lydd, which is also known as the London Ashford airport. This airfield, which is wedged between Dungeness nuclear power station, Romney Marsh and a nature reserve, was given permission to extend its runway, to handle up to 500,000 passengers a year. This also upset environmentalists. Some environmental groups are considering taking legal action as well.
