Nick Henderson of terminals operations at Gatwick Airport, said: “Serving more destinations than any other UK airport, Gatwick offers great choice for people wanting to treat themselves and their loved ones this Valentine’s.

“As usual, European mini-break destinations are proving popular but it’s interesting to see less traditional cities, 
hitting the spot for Valentine’s breaks this year.”
