The North Pier development project at OR Tambo International Airport (ORTIA) is the first fully capable A380 docking and disembarking facility in South Africa. This development not only increases the ability to handle passenger volume at ORTIA, but also installs the capability to dock four high-capacity Airbus A380 aircraft. The scope comprises of twelve direct boarding gates within the Pier and twelve remote stand gates accommodated within a new bus terminal. Extensions on the project included the addition of twenty-five shops as well as five airline lounges. Additional 12 contact stands for aircraft to serve departing and arriving passengers. Part of the project is the extension of the successful duty free retail, airline lounges & a new bussing station to transport passengers to aircraft parked at remote stands.
