Due to an ongoing issue with Vodafone - a provider of IT services for Gatwick - flight information is not being displayed correctly on the airport's digital screens and is currently being displayed manually in the terminals.

Gatwick would like to apologise to any passengers affected and expects Vodafone to resolve the issue as soon as possible.
