About the Airport

OR Tambo Airport was eventually named after Oliver Reginald Tambo, a vocal and active anti-apartheid politician and an important figure in the African National Congress. In addition to acting as the core for international and domestic flights for large airlines, the airport is also the main hub for domestic flights run by smaller, local airlines.

The airport’s location defines it as a ‘hot and high’ airport; because it is 1700 meters above sea-level, the air is notably thinner than it is at other airports. In flying terms, this means that many of the airplanes have to reduce their weight by carrying less fuel. As a result, numerous flights from OR Tambo Airport refuel at airports as part of their flight schedule. It also means that the airport’s two runways are longer than is standard, to achieve take-off velocity at such a high altitude.
