Joburg gets ready for A380

By Administrator |

Johannesburg International Airport has announced that work required to accommodate the A380 Airbus will be complete by the end of 2008 and the existing arrival and departures terminals will be completely reconstructed over the next

five years.
This project will work alongside the development of the retail mall and a sleeping area which are due to be completed by the end of next year according to Airports Company of South Africa.
Chief Airports Planner Erik Kriel told a press conference yesterday that the upgrading process began three years ago ahead of the 2010 Soccer World Cup and he promised ‘massive upgrades’ of the airfields and terminal buildings prior to the event.
He said these upgrades would position the airport well for an expected doubling of passenger traffic over the next nine to ten years.
