 Other Items of Interest at Johannesburg O R Tambo Airport


Customs at the Johannesburg O R Tambo Airport as well as other ports / border crossings is amusing to say the least. It appears that it is more about job creation rather than proper scrutiny and screening of visitors.

 

Tambo Airport services include:

  • Duty free
  • Pharmacy
  • Postal services
  • Flower shop
  • Massage services
  • Luggage storage

 

Note: In January 2013 the airport's ICAO code was changed from FAJS to FAOR.

 

Trivia: Johannesburg O R Tambo Airport's runway, at 4,418 metres (14,495 ft), is one of the longest in Africa. It compares with Harare International Airport (HRE) in Zimbabwe, whose longest runway measures 4,725 metres (15,502 ft). The reason for this is that both are "hot and high" airports requiring long take-off runs.




 Disabled Facilities at the JNB Johannesburg O R Tambo Airport


The Tambo Airport has lifts (two of them are equipped with Braille) and ramps throughout the terminals. Disabled parking spaces are available and the free shuttle service which serves the remote car parking area is equipped to carry passengers in wheelchairs.
