Easter weekend is expected to generate an influx of passengers at the Gatwick Airport

The impending Easter weekend has led to preparations in the UK airports to cope with an influx of passengers over the Easter weekend. The Heathrow Airport had estimated the passage of 1.2 million passengers through the London gateway between March 28 and April 2. Heathrow Airport is readying itself to greet approximately 40% more families with small children during the coming Easter weekend.

Heathrow Airport, therefore, has special ‘Easter’ arrangements to welcome the influx of the passengers. The Heathrow Easter arrangements include collaboration with Beatrix Potter’s Peter Rabbit, who will be at the airport to interact with the passengers and to provide them with storytelling lessons.

Stansted Airport expects more than 220000 commuters across the Good Friday and Easter bank holiday weekend. The reason behind the expected influx of passengers at Stansted Airport is Britons journeying to sunnier destinations and European ski resorts to escape the frigid conditions gripping numerous zones of Britain.

Liverpool Airport is anticipating a 10% jump in passenger numbers, with a major factor behind the jump being the Easter and Good Friday bank holiday weekend. The Liverpool Airport expects to cope with more than 200000 passengers over the next two weeks.

The Good Friday and Easter weekend has led to Gatwick Airport estimating its busiest Easter holiday period ever. More than 1.6 million passengers are likely to pass through the Gatwick Airport during the two-week break.

Meanwhile, the bosses of the Robin Hood Airport expect that Good Friday will be one of their busiest days ever as Doncaster readies itself for the Easter getaway. Over 30000 passengers are likely to pass through the terminal from Good Friday until the completion of the school holidays in two weeks’ time. The Robin Hood Airport’s duty free shop has purchased extra stock to deal with the anticipated demand.

Numerous Doncaster tourist attractions are organising events over the Easter period for those who are residing in the borough. The Frenchgate Centre has an Easter Egg throughout the Easter week while Brodsworth Hall has also planned an egg hunt as part of a WW 2-themed Easter weekend of entertainment.
