Johannesburg OR Tambo Transit holdups?

Jump to last reply

How are the hold ups at OR Tambo airport these days?

My experiences of transiting was bad before the modernisation but now, from my experience it is a total nightmare due to passport control!

My last trip through the airport in 2011 took nearly 3 hours to clear the check point, although they tried rushing passengers through who had imminent departures many missed their connection.

Before I book my flights I have the choice of a 1¼ hour stop over & a 4½ hour stop over.
I'd prefer the 1¼ hour but am I in danger of missing my outbound flight even though I'm flying with the same airline, SAA.
