The license, awarded by Airports Company South Africa, enables Menzies to continue operating at O R Tambo International, Cape Town International, King Shaka International, Dawid Stuurman International, Bram Fischer International, George, Kimberley, King Phalo, and Upington International airports.

Moreover, it will further support Menzies’ ability to develop other services such as air cargo, VIP meet and greet, and lounges.
