It is also the ONLY private international airport in South Africa. While it is one of the most used airports in the country, Lanseria had humble beginnings. It was started in 1972 by 2 pilots as merely a grass strip airfield, and was only officially opened in August 1974. Lanseria Airport is well known as being the airport that Nelson Mandela landed at after being released from prison in 1990.
