What is Phalaborwa Airport Like?
Phalaborwa is a small airport and has only the one flight in and out each day from Johannesburg with Airlink. Despite the single route, it is a busy airport with almost year round high passenger traffic. As the airport only accepts internal flights, facilities at the airport are minimal with no security measures. It consists of a small basic terminal with a small kiosk selling papers, confectionery and postcards and has vending machines for refreshments, there being no café facilities at the airport. Planes flying to Phalaborwa are small and passengers embark and disembark via steps and across the airport apron. The car hire desk is easily located at the airport for those that have pre-booked a vehicle and whilst most other tourists are with holiday companies and are collected by transfer buses, there is an irregular local bus service and taxis that will take you into Phalaborwa.
