OR Tambo International Airport management has released a statement saying they are aware of a protest by taxi operators today. 

They are advising that passengers allow for delays and longer travelling time to the airport.

“We are staying in close contact with the metro authorities and the South African Police Service in order to keep the routes into and out of the airport open,” says Leigh Gunkel-Keuler, spokesperson of OR Tambo International Airport.

“However, protest action of this nature is not entirely predictable and passengers scheduled to depart from the airport on Thursday should make every effort to give themselves more time to get to the airport,” she says.
