Get to Know OR Tambo International Airport, Johannesburg

Situated 25 kilometres east of central Johannesburg, O.R. Tambo International Airport is both the main international gateway to southern Africa and the busiest hub for flights to the region’s biggest tourist attractions.

Although it is of limited inherent interest to travellers, O.R. Tambo International Airport – which was renamed in honour of the late ANC leader Oliver Tambo in 2006 – is the most important air gateway to southern Africa, handling up to 10 million passengers annually. And for those literally just overnighting between international or domestic flights, several quality hotels lie within walking or shuttle distance of the airport terminals.

O.R. Tambo is also the main airport servicing Gauteng, the country’s most populous province, and it lies less than an hour’s drive from central Johannesburg, central Pretoria and the popular northern suburb of Sandton. It is also connected to all these cities by a recently opened high-speed rail service called the Gautrain.

For those arriving early in the day and seeking a quick escape to the bush, O.R Tambo rather conveniently lies alongside the main highway connecting Gauteng to the Kruger National Park and the other popular attractions of Mpumalanga Province.
