Woodford has now landed at Johannesburg O.R Tambo International

Now with its new name

It was originally founded in the year 1952 and was named as Jans Smuts Airport. This airport was used during the 70s as a test airport for the aircraft Concorde. Now called O.R. Tambo International Airport, Johannesburg International Airport was renamed after the African National Congress President Oliver Tambo. The renaming happened in the latter part of 2005 and was implemented on October 27, 2006. A month after the new name was implemented, it hosted the first ever flight of the Airbus A380 in Africa. As of 1996, this became the busiest airport in Africa after it has taken over the number one spot from Cairo International Airport.
