Reopening an airport terminal is harder than you might think

On Sunday, the South Terminal at London’s Gatwick Airport will reopen for the first time since 2020. It turns out that mothballing an entire terminal isn’t quite as easy as turning out the lights.

Thanks to all the team at Gatwick Airport! (To be clear, this isn’t a sponsored video: I approached them about filming this, and I’m grateful for the access. I did not expect to get out on the airfield.)

Bonus fact for pulling down the description: this was filmed on Wednesday, when the cloud of Saharan dust was in the atmosphere. I had to do a lot of colour-correction to make the outside scenes look normal!
