London Gatwick Airport: “While May has seen good growth in passenger numbers at Gatwick, this can be linked in the most part to the half-term holiday being in May this year rather than June and poor weather in the UK. June traffic growth month-to-date has been more subdued, returning to underlying trend," Nick Dunn, CFO. Source: Company statement, 11-Jun-2013.
