Lanseria International Airport, a fantastic privately owned international airport, is situated near the sprawling urban centres of Randburg and Sandton in the northwest of Johannesburg, South Africa.
Starting out as a humble grass strip airfield in 1972, Lanseria International Airport grew steadily and is now one of two airports in Johannesburg that caters for passengers on commercial airlines; the other being OR Tambo International Airport. The airport has two runways that can handle various large aircrafts, including the Boeing 757-300 and the Airbus A319.
Although fewer airlines fly to Lanseria International Airport than OR Tambo International Airport, it is the preferred domestic travel option for many a busy Johannesburg traveller as it is easily accessible and closer to Randburg, Sandton, Pretoria, Midrand, and the West Rand. Lanseria is also located within close proximity to a wealth of spectacular tourist destinations and well-known landmarks, including Lesedi Cultural Village, the Sterkfontein Caves, the Cradle of Humankind, Hartbeespoort Dam, Montecasino, Nelson Mandela Square, and UNISA.
Lanseria International Airport is famous for being the airport at which Nelson Mandela landed when he flew to Johannesburg after being released from prison in February 1990.
