About Airports Company South Africa


Airports Company South Africa SOC Ltd (the Group) owns and operates South Africa's nine principal airports, including three international gateways; O.R. Tambo, Cape Town and King Shaka International Airports. We also participate in equity investments abroad and provide technical advisory and consultancy services to airports.

The South African Government is a 74.6% majority shareholder in our Company. We align ourselves with the nation's aspirations of transformation, sustainable growth and value creation. While providing world-class secure infrastructure for airlines to transport people and goods, we recognise that we have a key role in the national development plan; in facilitating economic growth, job creation and accelerating transformation towards inclusive economic participation.

Our revenue is generated from aeronautical, non[1]aeronautical and non-core sources. Aeronautical revenue is derived from government-regulated charges or tariffs paid by airlines. This includes fees for aircraft landing, aircraft parking and passenger service charges. Non-aeronautical income is derived from multiple sources that include retail sales, concession fees, property leases, parking fees, hotel operations and advertising. Non-core revenue is derived from equity investments abroad and technical advisory and consultancy services to airports.

While the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the aviation industry globally has been devastating and the path to recovery will be long, we are confident the foundation of a solid balance sheet, a strong reputation and enduring competitive advantages will stand us in good stead.
