Plans for the Lanseria Smart City – first known as Cradle City – started in 2007. The idea is to create South Africa’s first city built around an airport.

However, since 2007, not much was said about the project until President Cyril Ramaphosa mentioned it in his 2020 State of the Nation address and Premier David Makhura’s Gauteng State of the Province address.

Sitting in the centre of the development, the airport will be the main economic driver for the city’s growth.

According to My Broadband, the airport currently accommodates 3.5-million passengers per annum, with a vision to accommodate 18 to 20-million passengers in future.
