Flights to South Africa

There are in excess of 30 airports serving South Africa flights. The majority of flights to South Africa go via three main airports. The major gateway is OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg, renamed in 2006 to honor Oliver Reginald Tambo. As the air hub for southern Africa, it is also the busiest airport on the continent, serving more South Africa flights than any other. It is also one of only a handful in the world that offers non-stop flights to six continents. However, Cape Town International was voted the best airport in Africa, although it is the country’s second largest airport, situated 14 miles from the city center. International visitors wanting to hit the golden beaches tend to use the country’s newest airport, King Shaka International Airport. Smaller airports serve flights to South Africa from neighboring countries.
