George Airport Guide

Over 250,000 passengers use George Airport each year to access this amazing part of the country. The airport is small and is an exact copy of the airport at Keetmanshoop in Namibia. Your time there will pass quickly as the airport has been awarded the title of most efficient airport twice in recent years. There’s not an awful lot to do there but you’ll find the café sufficient to assuage your hunger and there’s a small kiosk selling all the things you might need for your journey.

George Airport Directions

The easiest way from the airport into the town is by taking the R404 north until it reaches the R102 then turn right. Following this road will lead you right into the centre of George.

George Airport Parking

275 parking spaces await you at George Airport. The parking is all in one lot with disabled parking spaces at the front nearest the terminal whilst longer term parking is expected to use the rear of the car park.
