Johannesburg (Joburg Jozi) is served principally by OR Tambo International Airport (formerly Johannesburg International Airport and before that was known as Jan Smuts Airport) for both domestic and international flights. Lanseria Airport, located to the north-west of the city and closer to the business hub of Sandton, is used for commercial flights to Cape Town, Durban, Port Elizabeth, Botswana, and Sun City as its shown in Johannesburg (Joburg Jozi) airports map. Other airports include Rand Airport and Grand Central Airport. Rand Airport, located in Germiston, is a small airfield used mostly for private aircraft and the home of South African Airways first Boeing 747 Classic, the Lebombo, which is now an aviation museum. Grand Central is located in Midrand and also caters to small, private aircraft.
Lanseria International Airport serves as an alternative air connection to Johannesburg OR Tambo International Airport in South Africa as its mentioned in Johannesburg (Joburg Jozi) airports map. It is a private airport, meeting all the international standards as specified by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO). The airport has the capacity to handle large aircraft such as the Boeing 757-300. The airport is located in the vicinity of Johannesburg (Joburg Jozi) major business hub Sandton. It is connected through the R512 road that runs between Randburg and Sandton, two of the wealthiest regions of the city of Johannesburg.
A direct, nonstop flight between Rand Airport (QRA), Johannesburg (Joburg Jozi), South Africa and Grand Central Airport (GCJ), Johannesburg, South Africa would travel a Great Circle distance of 18 miles (or 28 kilometers) as you can see in Johannesburg (Joburg Jozi) airports map. A Great Circle is the shortest distance between 2 points on a sphere. Because most world maps are flat (but the Earth is round), the route of the shortest distance between 2 points on the Earth will often appear curved when viewed on a flat map, especially for long distances. If you were to simply draw a straight line on a flat map and measure a very long distance, it would likely be much further than if you were to lay a string between those two points on a globe. Because of the relatively short distance between Rand Airport and Grand Central Airport, the route shown on this map most likely still appears to be a straight line.

OR Tambo International Airport (IATA: JNB, ICAO: FAJS) (ORTIA) is a major airport in Kempton Park, Ekurhuleni, Gauteng, South Africa, near the city of Johannesburg (Joburg Jozi). It serves as the primary airport for domestic and international travel to/from South Africa and is Africa busiest airport with a capacity to handle up to 28 million passengers annually. The airport is the hub of South Africa largest international and domestic carrier, South African Airways (SAA), and a number of smaller local airlines as its shown in Johannesburg (Joburg Jozi) international airport map. It was formerly officially known as Johannesburg (Joburg Jozi) International Airport and before that as Jan Smuts International Airport (hence the airport ICAO code, FAJS) after one of South Africa internationally renowned statesman by that name. The first renaming was done in 1994 when the newly reformed South African government implemented a national policy of not naming airports after politicians. The policy was however reversed later, and the airport renamed again on 27 October 2006 after Oliver Tambo, a former President of the African National Congress.
OR Tambo International Airport is regarded as a "hot and high" airport. Situated almost 1700 metres (5,500 feet) above mean sea level, the air is thin as its mentioned in Johannesburg (Joburg Jozi) international airport map. This has implications for the performance of aircraft at altitude. For example, flights from Johannesburg (Joburg Jozi) to Washington, D.C., currently operated with an Airbus A340-600, once had to stop in Dakar International Airport in Senegal for refuelling, since the aircraft was not able to make the run on one fuel fill. This is because of decreased performance on take-off from the airport, where an aircraft cannot take off fully laden with fuel, cargo, and passengers, and must use a longer stretch of runway to reach take-off velocity. By contrast, through April 2009, the return leg of the flight from Washington to Johannesburg was a non-stop 15-hour flight, with better performance of the aircraft at Washington Dulles International Airport in Washington where the airport is 95 meters (313 feet) above sea level.
There are six terminals at Johannesburg (Joburg Jozi) international airport, but these can be broken down into three major areas as you can see in Johannesburg (Joburg Jozi) international airport map: the international terminals; the domestic terminals; and the transit terminals. The transit terminal housed disused parts of the old domestic terminals. It has been mostly demolished to build a new Central Terminal that will provide an indoor link between domestic and international terminals, as well as a central passenger check-in area and more gates. It is currently under construction for the 2010 FIFA World Cup. Terminals A1 and A2 handle international passengers while the other two terminals handle domestic passengers. Due to the airport design, departure and arrivals terminals are considered separate terminals. The Central Terminal that is under construction will be named Terminal A3 and it will be used for both international and domestic passengers. The airline Mango has its head office on the mezzanine level of the Domestic Departure Terminal.
