In September 2013 it was announced that an Aurecon-led consortium had won the contract to develop the Ekurhuleni OR Tambo Aerotropolis in Gauteng. The aerotropolis concept is now mainstream in aviation planning, and there is little doubt that it has brought substantial economic and social benefits to airport owners, as well as local businesses and communities. However, this experience has largely been gained in the airports of Europe and North America. The Ekurhuleni Aerotropolis offers a unique opportunity to apply the lessons learnt at these other airports to develop a truly African solution.
