    Lanseria International Airport is one of South Africa’s success stories. From its beginning thirty years ago as an airfield located in a rural area, to the high level of service offered to the international aviation industry that it is today, it has played a major role in the South African aviation industry.

    Lanseria Airport strives to maintain its excellent reputation of efficiency, good parking, cleanliness, good facilities etc. and this past week they went even further!! My daughter and I flew back from Cape Town on Sunday and my daughter's car battery was flat. The driver who took us to the car in Long Term Parking (in one of the little golf carts) immediately called on someone to bring a battery charger, connected it to my daughter's battery and his golf cart's and in less than 5 minutes we were on the road. We did not ask for help, he simply offered it. Lanseria Airport, it's all these "extras" that make you the professional airport that you are. I have written to Lanseria Airport to say thank you as well!!

    Such a convenient airport - easy to park, book in, pick up luggage, get your rental etc. Definite perks to having a small airport!

    Flew to Cape Town from Lanseria on Thursday and the airport was spotless. My only complaint was there was a really bad sewerage smell at the side entrance. The service from the Kulula staff was excellent as well as from the airport staff. I was surprised to see the small take away inside the lounge was no longer there. Flights both ways were on time, no problems with parking and am happy to be home again.

    The only reason I would fly from lensaria is because flights are sometimes a lot cheaper. But it is really out of the way for me...

    Living in Fairland makes driving to Lanseria Airport so much easier than all the way to O R Tambo - on to the Krugersdorp highway, no tolls to pay and 20 minutes later I am there. The Airport is extremely well run. Parking is great - whether you want short term or long term. The waiting lounge has a restaurant but if you don't feel like ordering anything, there is free coffee and tea if you are happy serving yourself. Free newspapers to read while waiting for your flight. The only "nit pick" I would have is when they announce your flights or warnings about watching your bags - the loudspeakers seem to muffle the words spoken and you don't hear the announcements clearly. Staff are very helpful and friendly. Otherwise, its Kulula to Cape Town!!

    Went to Cape Town on business last week. Parked in the "long term" parking and was collected on the little golf cart by the airport staff as I locked my car. The airport was clean and everything went well. So convenient having Lanseria Airport!! 30 minutes from home, plenty of parking, free coffee and newspapers. Great job!!

    This has to be the most convenient, clean, friendly airport for anyone living in the West Rand. I go to Cape Town for a weekend, leave my car in the long term parking. Someone in a little "golf cart"arrives within seconds of me parking my car to take me up to the main terminal. I can sit in the lounge and have free coffee, read free newspapers in the spotlessly clean lounge until my plane arrives. What more could you want!! Keep it up Lanseria.

    Ideal for me as its close to home. You don't get caught in much traffic like you do to OR Tambo. The airport has expanded over the year with a big renovation recently adding more parking and shops. Adequate parking for short term or long term however the rates can be a bit steep. Best to use long term parking which works out cheaper if you park more than 3 days or so.I regular fly from here and am never disappointed with the airport.

    Lanseria is the best idea ever for people travelling within SA. I've never taken an international flight but it's so much more convenient for domestic travel in SA. OR Tambo is a great airport but it's one hour away from home excluding traffic so Lanseria is just ideal. They have expanded nicely over the last while and I enjoy the viewing deck from which you can see the planes coming and going.

    The perfect airport!!! It is small, there are no crowds, check in is fast and efficient, it is easier to get to with less traffic and easier parking, it is safe and convenient, the parking is rather expensive so hopefully they will do something about this. Not many amenities but it is not an airport where you have to spend a lot of time. It is so quick and easy, getting off the plane, straight into the terminal building, suitcase waiting and out by the exit, what more does one need?

    Depending on where you are trying to get to in JHB, this often is the key to missing some traffic and travel time ! It has everything you would want in a airport. Easy access, clean and gets the job done. My tip make sure you know where u landing in JHB and make sure who ever is picking you up goes to the right airport! I once was getting picked up and well I was at Lanseria my life was at OR Tambo.

    Flew from Durban and back.Its convenietly located so my family can pick me up when I visit. . No traffic, has efficient and quick check-in, helpful staff when boarding.
    Amenities were minimal and Parking is quiet expensive which is a big thumbs down.
    Heard there was a major rennovation, hope to fly to this airport again and post an updated review. Things can only get better.

    It was an absolute pleasure flying from Lanseria. The terminal is neat and the staff uber-efficient. Also not so crowded as the bigger terminals which helps to calm the rush. I had a rental from Tempest and the process went smoothly. Lots of local celebs use Lanseria, so if you are lucky you might run into your favourite :)
