    @Paskauskas,G,Giedrius,JSHD1 R ,

    Welcome to the Microsoft Q&A Platform. Thank you for reaching out & I hope you are doing well.

    I understand that you would like to know the impact of ExpressRoute gateway IP unavailability.

    Technically, it should never be the case where a Public IP becomes unavailable in Azure.

    • It is possible if the IP is Regional/Zonal and there is a corresponding regional/zonal failure, then the IP may become unavailable.
    • But this also means, the associated resource (which will also be using the same region/zone) will also become unavailable.
    • So, this means, IP Address alone becoming unavailable while the IaaS or PaaS service associated with it is available is not possible.

    In your case, you will not encounter a scenario where the Gateway is healthy and available, but the IP associated with the gateway is unavailable - so the question is not correct.

    Hope this clarifies.

    Kindly let us know if this helps or you need further assistance on this issue.
