Passengers flying from Gatwick Airport can now take a virtual tour of the terminals through Google Streetview and Google Indoor Maps.

Google Streetview and Google Indoor Maps are now available for all public areas of Gatwick Airport, allowing passengers to take a virtual tour of North and South terminals.

Using over 2,000 stitched images, Google’s Indoor Streetview allows passengers to explore the check-in areas, departure and arrivals halls, shops and restaurants before they even get to the airport.

The interactive maps pinpoint key areas of interest, including information hubs, charging points, play areas and toilets. Once they are inside the airport, passengers are able to instantly identify where they are and navigate their way around.

The services can be accessed from desktop browsers, android and iOS smartphones, and tablets by logging on to the Google Maps website, the Google Maps app, or the Gatwick Airport website.

Michael Ibbitson, Chief Information Officer at Gatwick Airport, said: “We’ve worked closely with Google to make these new mapping services as comprehensive and detailed as possible. As part of Gatwick’s £1.2 billion investment programme we’re continually looking to innovate and improve the passenger experience and this latest technological development will make it easier than ever for passengers to make a speedier trip or the most of their time at the airport.”
