Boasting   a   very   rich   history,   O.R.   Tambo   International   Airport,   the   biggest   and   busiest   airport   in   Africa   is   situated   in   Ekurhuleni   in   South Africa's   economic   capital,   Johannesburg.   From   its   humble   beginnings   in   1952,   the   airport   has   undergone   two   name   changes   from   Jan   Smuts Airport   to   Johannesburg   International   in   1994.   It   was   renamed   O.R.   Tambo   International   Airport   on   27   October   2006   after   the   late   freedom stalwart, Oliver Reginald Tambo. This   transport   hub   boasts   key   elements   required   for   a   world-class   airport   business   –   location,   accessibility   and   connectivity.   It   is   ideally situated   in   the   heart   of   South   Africa's   commercial   and   industrial   hub,   with   excellent   road   infrastructure,   linking   it   to   the   national   road network. O.R.   Tambo   International   Airport   services   airlines   from   five   continents   and   plays   a   vital   role   in   serving   the   local,   regional   air   transport   needs of South African and international travellers. The   airport   offers   various   retail   outlets   for   travellers'   convenience.   It   also   boasts   top-of-the-range   hotels   as   well   as   a   fully-equipped   gym within close proximity.
