New passenger link for international passengers

1115

O.R. Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg has opened a new passenger link for international passengers between Terminal A and the central terminal building, in order to ease congestion at the main security and emigration checkpoints.

Moving forward, the passage will be referred to as the airport’s passenger link for international passengers.

Passengers checking in at Terminal A, which is one of the oldest sections of the airport, will now be able to avoid joining queues at Terminal A’s security and emigration processing points.

Congestion has grown at these points due to strong growth in international passengers in recent years.

After checking in with their airline, passengers wishing to avoid the security and emigration checkpoints at Terminal A will proceed through the new passenger link to the Central Terminal B security and emigration processing points.

The link passage conforms to global security requirements and was built at a cost of R2.5-million ($193,000).

Directional signage has been put up and airline check-in staff will also direct passengers to the new international passenger link.
