Travel

Port Elizabeth Airport is located just a few kilometres out of the city centre and has regular flights to Johannesburg, Cape Town, Durban and other South African airports. Known as the 10 minute airport because of its close proximity to Humewood Beach and the rest of the city, it’s great knowing you’ll never have too far to drive after landing if you’re staying in or around the city. There are no international flights in or out of Port Elizabeth Airport but you’ll always be able to connect to overseas destinations via Johannesburg or Cape Town. Port Elizabeth is South Africa’s fifth largest city and as such you won’t battle to find domestic flights to PE anytime of the week. The airport serves a multitude of airlines, including South African Airways, Kulula, Mango Airlines and British Airways.
