Gatwick Airport to install Business Workboxes at departure gates


Gatwick Airport to install Business Workboxes at departure gates

Gatwick Airport is the first location in the world to make use of the ‘Business Workbox’ from Regus Express.

Passengers flying from Gatwick Airport will soon be able to rent a ‘Business Workbox’ at the departure gate, where they can work as they wait for their flight.

The four square metre mini offices provide just enough space for passengers to set up their laptop or make last-minute phone calls before boarding their flight. The airport is the first location in the world to adopt the Business Workbox.

As part of the deal with Regus Express, Gatwick Airport will also open a new Arrivals business centre, which will include private ‘thinkpods’ and meeting rooms, similar to the facility recently announced by Heathrow Airport.

Guy Stephenson, Chief Commercial Officer, Gatwick Airport, explained that the new business facilities make sense because one in five passengers passing through the airport is travelling on business.

He added: “The business centre will also offer shower facilities for arriving passengers – great for business travellers who wish to freshen up before their onward journey in the UK.”
