No More Announcements at SA Airports
Passengers departing on flights from Airports Company South Africa's six regional airports no longer receive passenger boarding calls. Port Elizabeth International Airport, Bram Fischer International Airport (Bloemfontein), East London Airport, George Airport, Upington International Airport and Kimberley Airport will all be implementing the intervention to reduce noise levels at the airports. Since 1 July public address microphones have been switched off and passengers are advised to check their boarding passes and the flight information display boards for boarding times. The only instances where centralised terminal announcements will be made will be for irregular operations such as gate changes, flight time changes, security matters, system failures and customer service anomalies such as lost minors.
