OR Tambo best African airport

2011-04-03 21:39

Johannesburg - The OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg was named the best airport in Africa in an international awards ceremony, the Airports Company SA (Acsa) said on Sunday.

"This award signifies yet another important milestone for the airport just months after SA successfully hosted the FIFA 2010 World Cup," said the airport's general manager Christopher Hlekane.

"The tournament showcased that OR Tambo International is not merely South Africa's flagship airport but also the gateway for any major African event," he said.

The World Airport Awards for 2010/2011 were held in Denmark on Wednesday, and were based on 11,38m survey questionnaires completed by over 100 different nationalities of airline passengers.

Passengers were quizzed on different airport service and product factors like check-in, arrivals and transfers.

The airport was also in the top three most improved airports worldwide. The airport undertook a multibillion rand infrastructure development programme a few years ago and opened its new central terminal building in April 2009.
