Exciting developments planned at Port Elizabeth Airport
Nelson Mandela Bay residents have much to look forward to this year, with new retail tenders on the cards at the Port Elizabeth International Airport as well as the possibility of the development of land there for light commercial and industrial purposes.
Airports Company SA (Acsa) shared new plans for the airport at the first event of the year hosted by the Nelson Mandela Bay Business Chamber on Friday.
"While no one can deny that we are entering a challenging year in our national economy, as a business community we will certainly need to be more agile and resilient in our daily working lives this year," says the Chmaber in a statement.
"Creativity and collaboration are key elements to breaking the bad cycle of low economic growth that we find ourselves in as a country.
"Now more than ever we need a collective effort to achieve business success and need to rally together more closely to make this happen.
"Everywhere we turn – from big to small companies – we hear about budget cuts. It is important that we turn these perceived low or no fund situations into opportunities by becoming creative and innovative in our thinking."
It said as a business community, there was need to embrace one another through greater cooperation, building a new mindset and a common goal of a sustainable, globally competitive city.
PE Airports manager Greg Small shared ideas on how Acsa wanted to balance its aeronautical and nonaeronautical revenue streams to achieve a better balance.
This involves the development of the airport land for commercial, light industrial and industrial manufacturing on a long lease basis.
It is certainly exciting news, coupled with this year’s plans to upgrade the airport ablution facilities, as well as the possibility of establishing a solar farm on the airport grounds and new retail tenders opening up imminently.
While passenger numbers through the airport are reportedly declining, 1.2 million people still make use of the airport annually.
"We expect nothing but the best from the airport – to continuously be an asset to the infrastructural selection offered in Nelson Mandela Bay."
