Contactless payment to Gatwick Airport

Oyster and contactless payment will be introduced at Gatwick Airport from January, the Department for Transport confirmed on November 10.

The payment methods will also be accepted at Horley, Salfords, Earlswood, Redhill and Merstham stations, following a deal agreed between the DfT, Transport for London and Govia Thameslink Railway.

Rail Minister Claire Perry said: “This extension of Oyster and contactless embraces some of the latest technology, making journeys easier for customers, offering them a vastly more convenient option.”
