Over the years, the company has transformed a fragmented, infrastructural parastatal into a focused, customer driven, efficient and commercially successful business, whose airports have become critical success factors to Brand South Africa. The company currently manages a network of nine airports in South Africa, including the three main international gateways of O.R. Tambo International, Cape Town International and King Shaka International Airports. In 2013, the nine airports facilitated nearly 39.5 million passengers.
Airports Company South Africa has two distinct revenue streams, which have generated similar income for the past few years. One source is defined as aeronautical income and is derived from regulated charges or tariffs. These consist of aircraft landing and parking charges, and passenger service charges. The non-aeronautical income is generated from commercial undertakings and flows from retail operations, car parking, car rental concessions, advertising, property leases and hotel operations.
