Pretoria Airport Mini Guide
Why do People fly to Pretoria?
Travel to Pretoria is done for a variety of reasons; It’s the administrative capital of the country and has many organisations providing administrative services for the population. Being a capital city, there are many national monuments and museums including the Voortrekker Monument outside the city. As with many South African cities, you’re not far from game reserves and one of South Africa’s least well known; Rietvlei Game Reserve, is close to the city. Its obscurity means that it is very natural and peaceful and makes for a more relaxed and less commercial way to see South Africa’s wildlife.
What is Pretoria Airport Like?
It’s quite a big airport but until two years ago had no regular passenger flights. Converted from a military airport at the end of the Second World War, it briefly took passenger flights before returning to cargo and general aviation duties. Plans to restore flights to Durban
and Cape Town
have proved successful with Pretoria residents previously having the long trip to Johannesburg
to make the connection. There is wireless internet available at the airport as well as a hotel, small shop and an Italian restaurant.
Latest Update from Pretoria Airport:
- Despite upgrades and improvements for the 2010 World Cup which saw scheduled and charter flights using the airport, no regular passenger flights have continued to this day. Lengthy discussions which started three years ago over regular services are still stalled.
