Upington Airport features one of the world's longest commercial runways - it's certainly the longest runway in Africa. At 4 900m long, it can land a space shuttle!

You can check flight times and details by:

Calling +27 (0) 86 727 7888 for ACSA's automated flight-information service

Calling the ACSA information desk, open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, on +27 (0)11 921 6262

Using your mobile phone to send an SMS containing the flight number to the number 35007, in reply to which you will receive up-to-date flight details

 

Upington Airport is Your Correspondent’s favourite in South Africa, for three reasons: 

first, it has Africa’s longest runway, at 5kms (NASA’s space shuttle could land on it);

second, it hosts only a single carrier, South African Airlink (see below), which flies mosquito-sized planes; and third, the landings of said mosquito-size planes on said gigantic runway are social occasions in Upington, drawing crowds.

If ever you seek the simple life, consider a move to Upington’s peace and quiet.

Ek het nou net klaar geleer vir 'n vliegtuig ingenieur by wonderboom lughawe. Wil graag my prakties doen terwyl ek 'n salaris verdien maar weet nie waarheen ek my cv kan e-pos nie. Kan iemand my moontlik help. Het lughawe gekontak met geen hulp.
