ABOUT OR TAMBO:
OR TAMBO - JOHANNESBURG INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT
OR Tambo airport is situated in Kempton park, Gauteng in South Africa. The JNB short code for the OR Tambo International Airport, have gone through some major changes since it was founded in 1952.
Previously known as Jan Smuts Airport, so named after a famous politician at the time. In 1994 it was renamed as Johannesburg International Airport, then in November 2006 it was renamed again after Oliver Tambo, as the former president of the ANC. South Africa is listed as the most popular destination in Africa. The busiest airport is the OR Tambo International Airport.
Visitors that came to OR Tambo airport recently were pleasantly surprised to see how smoothly things are run at the airport. The recent developments since 2010, as preparation for the FIFA World Cup, surely made a great impression on many visitors to the airport. The international terminal, constructed to house the all new Airbus A380, adding to that, the functionality of the upgraded shopping area, the overall neat and pleasing decor off the airport inner areas, not to mention the Gautrain Rapid Rail Link above the terminal, all made their contribution to the smooth running of the newly renovated JNB Airport. Another project that is under way will cost in the region of R8 billion, to include its own international check-in facilities, shops and lounges. By 2015, the airport is expected to reach a capacity for around 24 million passengers per annum. The runways are currently considered to be the longest in the world at 3300 and 4400m respectively
Visitors to the OR Tambo International Airport will be delighted to know that there are various amenities available within short distance from the airport. Their accommodation needs are covered by places like the Airport Grand Hotel that is a five minute drive away from the airport, offering the business executives easy access to other major centers of Pretoria and Johannesburg.
OR Tambo International Airport is a hot and high airport. Situated almost 1,700 metres (5,500 feet) above mean sea level, the air is thin. This means some aircraft must reduce weight by loading less fuel than they would otherwise. The thinner air is also the reason for the longer than usual runways. On some routes such as to North America it means flights from Johannesburg need to refuel en-route while the return flight originating from a lower altitude airport can upload enough fuel to reach Johannesburg non-stop.
OR Tambo International Airport is one of the few airports in the world that has non-stop flights to all six inhabited continents (others include Dubai International Airport, Abu Dhabi International Airport and Doha International Airport).
