Airport info


Our friendly staff are here to accommodate and assist you. Feel free to contact our information desk, situated at the entrance of the terminal building for assistance when you arrive.

This section will outline the facilities available at our airport. If you’re an aviation enthusiast, or would like to see aeroplanes in action, pop in to see the selection we have on offer and enjoy a first class front row seat view from our viewing deck. We’re probably the only international airport in the world where you can almost touch the planes and smell the jet fuel.

If you’re looking for a spot to recharge and refuel yourself, we have plenty on offer for you. Ample space, plug points, lounge facilities and WI-FI on offer, but to name a few. For international travellers we have foreign exchange facilities and duty free shopping available.

WI-FI Facilities
Limited free WI-FI is available in the terminal building. If you need a bit more, a pay as you go option is available.

Lost and Found
If you have left anything behind at the airport or on your flight, kindly contact the airline concerned to assist you with tracking down your item/s.   If anything has been handed in to us, you may collect it from the Baggage office in the Arrivals hall, near the exit door.

Wheelchair Access
This airport has been designed with you in mind and all our facilities are wheelchair (and pram) friendly.

When travelling on a flight with any airline (commercial or charter), be sure to advise them of your specific requirements before arriving at the airport. Some have restrictions limiting the number of special needs customers they are able to transport per flight, and may even suggest you take another flight so that they can accomodate your special request.  It's very important to ensure you don't arrive late for your flight and allow yourself plenty of time to check-in and get the necessary assistance from our staff, before your flight closes for departure. We would like to have enough time to make sure we looked after your needs in the best possible way.

Travelling with Children

At the Airport:

We have baby changing stations available and most of our facilities are located on the ground floor. Our lifts are pram friendly and we have large open spaces to accommodate crowds or energetic children. The restaurants located on the first floor offer great viewing opportunities and will keep your children entertained while they view the aeroplanes taking off and landing.

Children on board flights:

Every airline has different policies and procedures regarding the safe transportation of infants and children.  It's best to contact them directly to ensure you follow the correct guidlines listed by each of them.  Most airlines will allow you to travel with a pram, and/or a car baby seat, and/or additional luggage, and will try pre-seat you together as a family.  However, every airline has their own policy, so be sure to chat to them before booking your flight.  As a general rule, it's best to arrive early for your flight to ensure you have enough time to check-in and get through the necessary security check points, with your children before your flight departs.

Travelling with Pets
If you are considering travelling with your pet, we can accommodate you. Our team of airport staff will take extra good care of your pet. Certain restrictions may apply and it’s best to contact your charter or commercial airline beforehand to ensure you comply with their strict transportation requirements. Whilst your pet is in our care, you can be assured of our best attention and love.

Big Five Duty Free

One of the best reasons to shop at the airport is purchasing world-class items at the Big Five Duty Free. The store offers an array of world-class jewellery, tobacco, liquor, toys, and clothing. Why not sample the selection of cosmetics and fragrances on offer from the houses of Chanel, Lancôme, Aramis, Givenchy and Dior to name but a few? 
Or round off your discounted shopping spree with some award-winning South African wine or tasty snacks and sweets as a gift for loved ones overseas. With all this on offer, and the sights and sounds of the runway just next door, you really will feel like you’re king of the world!
