|Port Elizabeth Airport|
The Port Elizabeth Airport in South Africa is easily accessible from other areas of the city, thanks to its location close to businesses, Algoa Bay, and other popular destinations. This convenience for travelers and locals alike is how the airport earned the nickname “The Ten Minute Airport.”
Originally the Port Elizabeth Airport was quite small without any extra amenities available for flyers. The airport was built back in 1929, but didn’t open for air travel officially until 1936.
The airport had only one runway and didn’t see construction of permanent air terminals until the 1950’s. Since then many changes have taken place, including the addition of multiple runways, air traffic control, and international flights.
Grab some java at House of Coffee, lunch on the go at Café Brazilian, or fix that sweet tooth at Cosmic Candy. Momento’s of Africa Curios and Gifts is a great place to pick up some quick souvenirs. Port Elizabeth has come a long was since its original construction and it only continues to grow in size and amenities.
