Gatwick Airport[nb 1] (IATA: LGW, ICAO: EGKK) is a major international airport in south-east England, 29.5 miles (47.5 km) south of Central London and 2.7 nautical miles (5.0 km; 3.1 mi) north of Crawley. Also known as London Gatwick, it is the second-busiest airport by total passenger traffic in the United Kingdom after London Heathrow. Gatwick is the ninth-busiest airport in Europe.
Gatwick opened as an aerodrome in the late 1920s, and has been in use for commercial flights since 1933. The airport has two terminals, the North Terminal and the South Terminal, which cover areas of 98,000 m2 (1,050,000 sq ft) and 160,000 m2 (1,700,000 sq ft) respectively. It operates as a single-runway airport, using a main runway with a length of 3,316 m (10,879 ft). A secondary runway is available but, due to its proximity to the main runway, can only be used if that is out of use. In 2015, 40.3 million passengers passed through the airport, a 5.7% increase compared with 2014. Its runway is structured for Small props, Small Jets, Medium Jets, Long Range Jets, Regional Airliners and Large Airliners.
