Lanseria Airport is a privately owned international airport that is situated in the north-west of Johannesburg. Built in 1974, it is used mainly for regional, corporate and diplomatic aircraft but can handle aircraft up to the Boeing 757-300 and Airbus A319. Although the passenger throughput is not as high as OR Tambo, Lanseria handles more aircraft movements (take-offs and landings) per year than any other airport in Africa. (Source: Wikipedia)
