Johannesburg Tambo JNB Airport Overview
Johannesburg O.R. Tambo International Airport JNB, or simply referred to as ORTIA, is named after the former President of the African National Congress Oliver R. Tambo, and is South Africa's primary airport. ORTIA is situated on a high plateau, 1,694 meters above sea level. This necessitates U.S. flights to make a refueling stop before continuing on to ORTIA, but enables them to return non-stop.
JNB Airport is located 1,700 meters above sea level, in Kempton Park, Ekurhuleni, Gauteng Province, a 20-minute drive to the City of Johannesburg, South Africa, and is accessible from the R24 Airport Freeway (via N3 Eastern Bypass) and from R21, which intersects with R21 & the Tampo Airport Highway. i
With two very long runways and an average of 18 million passengers per year, Tambo Internatonal Airport is hub for South African Airways, and is served by a multitude of domestic and international airlines offering direct and connecting flights to all points of the globe.
The on-Airport Sun Intercontinental Hotel is only 30 meters from the arrivals door at Terminal A.
The Passenger terminal complex at Johannesburg Tambo Airport consists of a Central Terminal Building with central passenger check-in areas, and inside connections to the Domestic Terminal B (TB) and the International Terminal (TA).
