Customs Guidance

Customs are governed by the South African Revenue Service (SARS) which operates 24/7, for passengers it’s a very short process through the terminal building, for cargo flights it is conducted at the aircraft. Using a local freight handler/forwarder would be beneficial.

For more information on customs in South Africa, please see the following link: 1.3 Customs Information. 

Airfield Costs

Navigation Charges

Airports Company South Africa (ACSA) charges users for the use of its facilities, in accordance with these regulatory provisions. The categories of airport charges are:

  • Landing fees
  • Aircraft parking fees
  • Passenger service charges

Landing fees vary according to the origin of the aircraft and the aircraft weight, and fall into three categories, namely: domestic, regional and international. For aircraft parking fees, the combination of the weight of the aircraft and the duration parked (to the extent that it exceeds four hours) and the parking stand utilised are considered in determining the parking charges.

Passenger Service Charges (PSC) are charged on departures only, categorised into domestic, regional and international.

Cargo Terminal Charges

Due to the amount of Cargo/Freight forward companies available at O.R Tambo International this information fluctuates and may be obtained directly from that chosen vendor.

Air-bridge Charges

In terms of 5 (2) of the Airports Company Act, 1993 (Act No 44 of 1993), as amended it is herby published for general notice that as from 1 April 2021, the Airports Company South Africa Limited, Reg. No. 1993/04149/06, will levy airport charges set out in the schedule by virtue of a permission granted in terms of section 12 of the said act. I reference to parking charges shall be payable after an aircraft has been parked at a company airport for a period exceeding four hours: Provided that the parking shall be doubles if such aircraft has been parked at any company airport at a parking bay where a passenger loading bridge is in operation. A parking charge shall be calculated for any period of 24 hours or any part thereof from 4 hours for which an aircraft has been parked.

Security 

O.R. Tambo is Africa’s largest airport and South Africa’s premier point of entry. Security has been ramped up with additional members being provided by the South African Police Service and licensed security contractors ensuring a Skytrax 3-star rating. Among the measures being taken are random stop and search operations of people working in and around the airport. Other measures include additional staff to monitor several hundred CCTV cameras in real time.

Staff with permits to work on the airside are not only subject to random stop and searches but are also subject to intensified searches at access points, both entering and leaving access-controlled areas.

Baggage wagons and other vehicles being used at airside are being randomly stopped with drivers subject to questioning and inspections carried out.

As a licencing requirement of the SA Civil Aviation Authority (SACAA) all agencies and contractors involved in security recently conducted an emergency drill to ensure continuing preparedness for emergencies.
