Olympic Games Makers Return to Gatwick this Christmas

Gatwick airport has announced it will be bringing back the Olympic volunteers who helped at busy airports over the summer to help manage the holiday rush this year. The London Ambassadors are set to return to Gatwick armed with Christmas hats and festive spirit!

It is expected that around 1.5 million people will pass through the airport between 17th December and 2nd January, and the Olympic volunteers will be on hand to help out. Also joining the airport helpers will be Father Christmas and his reindeer, accompanied by carol singers to help get travellers feeling festive and merry. Sunday 23rd December is set to be the busiest departure day, according to the airport, with around 56,000 passengers flying off to Europe and beyond to visit friends and family.

Louisa Craven, part of Gatwick’s terminal operations team, said that, “staff and extra helpers, including the London ambassadors who made such a great impression during the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, will be on hand to assist at every stage to ensure our passengers enjoy a great experience at Gatwick with some fun, festive entertainment along the way."

In the summer, 70,000 Olympic Volunteers, sometimes referred to as 'Games Makers', played a vital role in keeping the games running smoothly and it is hoped they can do the same for Gatwick this Christmas. Earlier this month the mayor of London, Boris Johnson, treated 3500 of the games makers to a Christmas concert to say thank you and revealed that many of the volunteers and ambassadors would be returning to help Gatwick and the capital during the busy Christmas period.
