Car Hire Bloemfontein

Bloemfontein Airport Guide

Bloemfontein is a little airport serving just under 300,000 passengers a year and whilst it’s not over-endowed with facilities there’s enough to make the time there comfortable. You’ll find the shops there will have everything you need for your journey and the small café’s range of snacks and drinks will keep you going until you get to Johannesburg.

Bloemfontein Airport Directions

The airport road leads out onto the main road, route 8 that leads into the city. It’s really easy to find the centre of the city and you’ll be there in under ten minutes.

Bloemfontein Airport Parking

Bloemfontein is a small airport and as such doesn’t have huge amount of parking. You’ll still be able to find a space and consideration is given for those who are less mobile. Long term parking is in the same area as short term but is charged at a lower rate after the expiration of a certain amount of time.

Bloemfontein Airport Flight Information

There are no direct international flights to Bloemfontein and instead you’ll have to connect at one of South Africa’s main international airports if travelling from the UK. Johannesburg’s OR Tambo is usually the best one to choose.

Hotels Near Bloemfontein Airport

The Urban Hotel may have a dull name but it’s actually a great hotel. Looking a little like a small office block, you can get a contemporary room there for £49 a night and upon checking out, you’ll have enjoyed your stay. The Protea Hotel, Willow Lake, is a little more upmarket but you’ll still get away with paying no more than £65 a night – a great rate for a fabulous hotel.

Bloemfontein Time Zone

The city of Bloemfontein is two hours ahead of the UK’s Greenwich Mean Time and is found in the South African Standard Time Zone (GMT+2)

Bloemfontein Info

Half a million people live in Bloemfontein and it’s one of the three capital cities of South Africa. The city was where the ANC was founded in 1923 and it has played a big role in South African history since its inception. The city centre is quite compact making it easy to tour and the sprawling suburbs hold little if anything of interest apart from the Eiffel Tower replica. The main tourist areas are along the waterfront and the area known as Mimosa Malls. There, you’ll find plenty to see and do.
