London Gatwick stated (14-Oct-2013) the 12.9% passenger growth on other long-haul routes were due to increases on leisure routes to the Caribbean and Africa being complimented by growth on long-haul business routes such as Dubai, China and Vietnam. Meanwhile, the 11.6% decline in North Atlantic passengers were entirely due to US Airways ceasing services from London Gatwick earlier this year. Commenting on the results, CFO Nick Dunn said "This reflects a return to more modest levels of growth compared to the summer months, where growth was higher following the London Olympics in summer 2013."
