Bus and Coaches Trains Stansted Express
While there are train options for this journey that can be quicker and at around the same price, only the National Express route between Stansted and Gatwick offers a non-stop service. You are however taking the longest stretch of the M25 motorway between any of the London airports, which brings inherent problems of time predictability. The run is 108 miles airport to airport and during the morning and evening rush hours delays become inevitable. The reason for such a long journey is that the coaches between the airports go via Heathrow, which adds some 40 miles than the shortest journey between the 2 airports of Gatwick and Stansted.
However if you go by the national Express timetable normal delays are taken into account in the published depart and arrival times.
