My VA is just about to start EGLL as one of its main airports.
I wondered if there was a download for the runway alternation program 2019 for EGLL?

Hi all, particularly those who control Gatwick,
I have been on London a few times in the last weeks where controllers have asked pilots if they are able to accept the new NOVMA departure which replaced both the conventional and RNAV KENET SIDs from runway 26L. Can I please ask that if they are unable (due to an out of date AIRAC), that you do not then route aircraft via SAM SIDs instead, as having filed a KENET, this take them in a completely different direction? If they only have the old KENET for 26L, KENET is fine.
08R is of course a different story, since KENET conventional SIDs still exist, but not the RNAV (#KENET1Z). So if someone has the IMVUR1Z departure, this has preference over both the old KENET and SAM SIDs. If they do not have the IMVUR departure, please clear on either KENET or SAM.
There have also been some changes to CLN->FRANE too.
May I also suggest that if the SID is no longer published on charts, it might be pertinent to remind the pilot of the initial climb restriction for the old SID? (It will be the same as the new one)
New SID not available (i.e. not updated AIRAC)? Leave route as filed, then clear on…
CLN DCT LEDBO M604... becomes ->
CLN L620 REDFA... becomes ->
FRANE M604 GASBA M197 REDFA...
CLN P44 SOMVA... becomes ->
