OR Tambo International Airport (IATA: JNB, ICAO: FAJS) (ORTIA) is a large airport in Kempton Park, Ekurhuleni, Gauteng, South Africa, near the city of Johannesburg.  It serves as the primary airport for domestic and international travel to / from South Africa and is Africa's busiest airport.

The airport is the hub of South Africa's largest international and domestic carrier, South African Airways (SAA), and a number of smaller local airlines.

It was formerly officially known as Johannesburg International Airport and before that as Jan Smuts International Airport (hence the airport's ICAO code, FAJS) after the South African statesman of that name. The first renaming was done in 1994 when the newly reformed South African government implemented a national policy of not naming airports after politicians. The policy was however reversed later, and the airport renamed again on 27 October 2006 after Oliver Tambo, the former President of the African National Congress.
