George Airport was formerly known as P.W. Botha Airport, named after the state president who lived in this part of the country. This airport was built in 1977 as an exact replica of the Keetmanshoop, Namibia airport. George Airport is located at the heart of the Western Cape’s Garden Route; a fashionable holiday destination and home to many of South Africa’s most affluent residents. Consequently, commercial and residential development in George and its surrounds is practically unsurpassed in South Africa. This efficient enterprise has won the “Airport of the Year” trophy five times since the contest was launched by South African Airways in 1987/88.
