Region: Africa: Southern Africa


South Africa has three major international airports in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban. Johannesburg, as South Africa's main economic centre, is home to the country's primary international gateway; Oliver R Tambo International Airport. South Africa's aviation industry is undergoing rapid expansion on the growth of business and leisure market travel which has spurred on a significant infrastructure development program at the country’s major airports. The Airports Company South Africa is the operator of nine of the country’s busiest airports, including the three main international airports, and handles over 18 million departing passengers annually and 200,000 aircraft landings. The government body responsible for formulating commercial aviation policy is the Department of Transport, while the organisation responsible for its regulation is the South African Civil Aviation Authority.
