Port Elizabeth Airport Guide

Port Elizabeth Airport is big and getting bigger. Over 1.75m passengers use it each year and it’s beginning to bulge at the seams. The current layout of the airport gives separate arrivals and departure areas linked by the retail and food areas. This area is designed as an atrium giving the whole airport a light and airy feel. There are plenty of shops there and a good choice of places to eat. Despite the overcrowding, transit is efficient, thanks to new procedures put in place for the 2010 World Cup.

Port Elizabeth Info

Port Elizabeth is the idyllic South African holiday destination. It has a near perfect climate; mild in winter and pleasantly warm in summer and with just enough rain to keep things green without giving the visitor a soaking. It’s the start of the historic Donkin Trail which follows the path early settlers took. Inland there are beautiful safari parks, mercifully free of malaria whilst the city is blessed with stunning golden sandy beaches. It’s a place to watch or participate in sport with a great cricket ground and the oldest bowling green in South Africa.
