Gauteng Explores Ways to Increase Airlift Capacity to Boost Tourism and Investments

Johannesburg, The Gauteng Air Access partners will host a stakeholder engagement session at SAA Aviation Museum on 19 September 2023. This meeting will be an opportunity for the Gauteng Air Access Network partners to engage stakeholders and media regarding this important economic growth sector.

The overall purpose of the network is to enhance air service connectivity between Gauteng city region through O.R Tambo International Airport (ORTIA) and Lanseria International Airport (LIA) supporting airports in the province and global getaways. There has been an increase in air access capacity in Gauteng following 2 years of flights and travel restrictions imposed by Covid-19. The measures to return Africa’s busiest airport to pre-pandemic levels both in terms of passenger numbers and operational efficiency and excellence has yielded positive result. Between June 2022 and September 2023, 6 airline routes have been launched, with 2 returning after many years.

The meeting will also engage stakeholders and media on the private sector investment of R5 million to increase the number of air routes servicing OR Tambo International Airport and Lanseria International Airport. The funds will be used to promote the opportunities to increase air routes and incentivize airlines to choose OR Tambo and Lanseria International Airports to increase the visitors numbers to Gauteng.
