Latest Update from Port Elizabeth Airport:

07/06/12 - Steadily falling passenger numbers have led to the indefinite postponement of the runway extension at Port Elizabeth Airport. Originally planned for the 2010 World Cup, the extension, which would have enabled it to receive the A380, is unlikely to happen within the next five years.
