Gatwick airport arrivals

If your flight is going to Gatwick, there are a few things that could help ensure smooth passage. Here we present some basic information about Gatwick airport arrivals. We will also tell you what to do if your flight ends up being delayed.

Gatwick airport arrivals: basic information

Whenever you're planning on taking a flight, it's always wise to check in advance to see if any disturbances have been announced. You can do so directly on the airline's website, but the airport's website will also give you a quick overview of all the current updates for that specific airport. In the case of Gatwick airport arrivals, you will have to check the website of the airport you're departing from. The Gatwick website could be very handy to check in the event that you're departing from Gatwick or if you are picking someone up who is due to arrive at the airport.

Visit the Gatwick website for current flight data, for Gatwick airport arrivals and departures:

If there is a strike or adverse weather on certain routes and flights, it may not always be reported on the airport's website. In that case, checking your flight status via your operating airline's online booking system will tell you what you need to know. We at Flight-Delayed also always try to inform our visitors of disturbances as they happen, so check our News section on the website or our Facebook page to stay up-to-date.

Was your flight to Gatwick delayed? You may be entitled to receive compensation!

There are rules in the EU determining when air passengers are entitled to receive compensation for the time they lost due to their flight being delayed or cancelled, or due to being bumped from a flight.

Whether you are entitled to receive compensation depends on your route, the operating airline, the cause of your delay and the length of your delay in arrival. Gatwick airport arrivals would entitle passengers to compensation if:

- you were delayed in arrival by 3 hours or more

- your flight departed from another EU airport and was operated by any airline

- your flight departed from a non-EU airport and was operated by a European airline

To find out how much compensation you may be able to receive and to test these criteria, enter your flight details in the flight calculator. We are a company that assists air passengers in compensation claims against airlines, so we would know exactly how to help you, and if you just want to check your flight first, you can: this advice is non-committal. 

Did you also know that: 

- these EU rules also apply to non-EU residents who experience delays to or from Europe?

- the compensation amount of 250, 400 or 600 EUR applies per passenger?

- the compensation amount is irrespective of the price of your ticket? That means that you could receive up to 480 pounds, even for tickets that you purchased through a low-cost carrier.

One last thing on the subject of Gatwick airport arrivals and departures: if you're still at an airport when your flight is delayed, always make sure to ask for the following:

- an overview of your rights (this is a legal requirement);

- a statement of delay;

- vouchers for refreshments, emails or phone calls, or even for hotel accommodation.

This will help claim compensation or get money back from your insurance later on!

Very fast and professional, got my claim just over a month but then again the airline did tell us we can claim and gave us leaflets.

Really simple to use, and didn't take very long for my claim to be processed.

I wasn't very optimistic about using this service, but the from the outset the communication was excellent and the instructions were clear. The claim is all handled via email and the online service portal. The team are very quick to answer any questions you have while the airline is assessing your claim. In my case, I was awarded 225 Euros compensation, better than nothing and so glad I took the time and effort to get this money back! Thank you Flight-Delayed for your fantastic service.

Very good service claiming a compensate after a long delay from airline and we got the out compensate. Thank you very much ...

Successful claim against Jet 2 ! Took a while (4yrs) but glad to finally won !!

This company provide a very fast and efficient service with no fuss and they took a fair amount of commission with no extra hidden charges. Extremely pleased with them.

i have had great help with the flight delayed trip thankyou very much to u and team

Very good Service for claming Money from Airline companies if you had a Problem like more than 3hrs delay, cancellations without reason. For my case, Airline rejected my Claim via customer Service but after i used this site it took only 4 weeks from Claim to confirmation for compensation. it's very easy to fill out the form to Claim and they answer/help right away. you should try with this even though Airline already refused to pay you with several reason.

It's taken 12 months to extract compensation from Ryanair, purely down to the pathetic customer service on the part of the Irish Airline. Will never use them again as they use every tactic in the book not to pay out, and even though they have now settled conversation rate 1.40, as opposed to commercial rate of 1,31. Many thanks to Flight-Delayed for their excellent support. Well worth 25% cut to get justice done. Highly recommended.

Just over three hours delay last year to Crete contacted this company, they sorted the claim and with in a few weeks Monet transferred into my account. fantastic service. Thank you

Didn't expect result But cash son it's way Thank you. Great company

What an excellent service , after trying for almost a year to claim compensation for a 5 hour delay in which we were kept inside the cabin with nothing to eat or drink i contacted this company and within 6 weeks I have recieved full compensation minus their 25% which I am happy to pay as I had given up. thanks again to the staff for all your communication and work to complete this. cannot recommend you enough

Just got our cempensation thanks to the team at flight delay very easy process, kept informed as to how the claim was going

Very good service to use for claiming money from the airline companies due to a long delays or cancellations for no reason or no explanation! I had no idea it is even possible, but I filled their forms and did not need to pay a thing for it. They claimed 800 euros for 2 passengers and all they took was their commission fee from the claimed price for their work which is the way it should be. They managed to get the money within a month or so.

My plane was delayed for over seven hours on a UK flight from Newquay to Manchester. I contacted Flight Delay and they quickly completed my claim without any fuss. I have received £195.62 minus a 25% charge, I actually received £145.07. All this took approx 5 weeks from beginning of claim to having payment into bank. HIGHLY RECOMMEND and thank you flight-delayed

Ryanair left us delayed at Knock Airport for over 4 hours. Not just inconvenient but annoyingly cost us an extra £23 airport parking which we could not reclaim. Although not a "serial complainer", saw the Flight Delayed Website and thought "why not?". So glad I did. Efficient and professional organisation that made it an easy process resulting in €300 for us and €100 for them and a "heads up" for Ryanair. Perfect.

What a nice surprise, cheque for delayed flight dropped through the letterbox. Asked flight delayed to do the work for me and a few emails and a few months later I received the cheque for over £600. Minus their 25% which I do not begrudge as if they hadn't done the work for me I would never have got anything. Also thanks to Martin Lewis for making me aware I could claim. Thanks delayed flights I will certainly recommend you.

Very helpful, I got a lot back. I also hope anybody who ever got flight delayed, don't lose your right! It didn't take me a lot of effort to submit the materials, they can help you.

Great service, very easy process and friendly team to deal with - answered questions quickly and through the online tool I was able to track the progress of our claim. Everything has been handled really well and I would happily recommend the Flight-Delayed team to help you with your claim.

My plane was over three hours late getting back to Manchester due to delays. I contacted Flight Delay and they got me £199 (minus 25% for their fee) for the delay. It took less than an hours work from me to fill out a form and give them my power of attorney. Six weeks later it was all sorted. Highly recommended!
