A conservation group are campaigning against Gatwick's proposal to add a second runway to the airport.
Gatwick Airport Conservation Campaign (GACC) group are against Gatwick's plan for another runway, which would make the airport as large as Heathrow.
The group have already campaigned twice against Gatwick in its bid to build a second runway.
Volunteers from the group have been giving out leaflets and recruiting members outside runway exhibitions, including Crawley and Ifield.
The GACC vice chairman, Peter Barclay, said: "Many people are confused by the airport response form which has 278 boxes which you can tick but only one well-hidden little box labelled 'None of these options' if you wish to say No to a new runway."
There has been an increase in the number of passengers flying through Gatwick last month.
The West Sussex airport handled more than 2.7 million passengers in March - a 5% rise since March 2013.
The rise came despite a dip in North Atlantic traffic and no US Airways flights from Gatwick in 2013.
Gatwick bosses are hoping that the summer's launch of three new Norwegian Air Shuttle routes to America will help increase traffic to the region.
Last week, the House of Commons Transport Committee criticised Gatwick and its handling of the Christmas Eve crisis when flooding caused a power failure which led to flight cancellations.
