PARIS (Reuters) - Britain's Gatwick Airport, which like many travel hubs around the world has been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic, has obtained a temporary reprieve from its banks over its debt, majority shareholder Vinci said.

Gatwick's bigger rival Heathrow in July said it had also sought a waiver over its debt covenants.
