East London's airport is a small but bustling one that plays an important role in the growing economy of the Eastern Cape.

Every day it welcomes between 20 and 30 flights - which bring 346 000 people to East London each year. Of these, about 140 000 are holidaymakers, mostly local, and about 15% are foreign tourists.

The airport offers the usual range of passenger services - as well as a coffee shop, a restaurant and a bookshop.

But the airport isn't only a hub for travelers - it's also a crucial link in the cargo chain. Many planes, carrying items such as pineapples, head for domestic destinations - but some cargo flights are bound for countries such as France and Holland.

East London Airport's long and interesting history begins in 1927, when it consisted of one hangar, one telephone, a wind indicator and one petrol pump. Since then, the airport has moved a couple of times and has undergone substantial development.
