|LANSERIA INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT
Lanseria has also played an important role in events that were of strategic importance for South Africa at on of other milestone in our country's history.
Lanseria International Airport provided a base for the British military that were transporting supplies to the peacekeeping forces in Zimbabwe in 1980.
Lanseria is also particularly proud of the fact that when former President Nelson Mandela was released from prison in May 1990, he was flown to Johannesburg and the first time he set foot on Gauteng soil after such a long time, was when he stepped off his aircraft onto the tarmac at Lanseria.
South African airports had their international status reviewed in February 2001 as part of the Government's revised infrastructure requirements for international aviation. Nine ACSA (Airports Company of SA) operated airports and the privately owned Lanseria were the only airfields to retain their international status.
With the recent expansion of the Main Terminal building (completed in 2002) and the upgrade of both the runways and taxiways, Lanseria is more geared than ever before to meet and exceed, the high demands of international aviation.
