Airports Company South Africa was formed in 1993 as a public company under the Airports Act (No. 44 of 1993) and, although majority owned by the South African Government, is legally and financially autonomous and operates under commercial law. Over the years, the company has transformed a fragmented, infrastructural parastatal into a focused, customer driven, efficient and commercially successful business, whose airports have become critical success factors to Brand South Africa. Airports Company South Africa SOC Ltd (the Company) owns and manages a network of nine airports in South Africa, including the three main international gateways of O.R. Tambo International, Cape Town International and King Shaka International Airports. In 2017, the nine airports facilitated nearly 41 million passengers. The Company is involved in equity investments abroad and provides technical advisory and consultancy services to other airports globally. Our majority shareholder is the South African Government (74.6%). In line with the South African Government’s objectives, we focus on creating sustainable value that positively impacts our business, our people and society, and our environment over the short, medium and long term. We do this by managing the Company in an integrated manner.
