Nelspruit Airport

Nelspruit Airport is the old airport of Nelspruit in South Africa, which uses NLP as its IATA code, and FANS as its ICAO code. The said airport is no longer used for scheduled passenger services, primarily because it was replaced with the bigger and the privately-owned Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport. The Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport is a nearby facility from the former Nelspruit Airport, providing passenger services for visitors to Nelspruit and to the Kruger National Park. The new airport is operated by Primkop Airport Management (Pty) Ltd., and is served Airlink and Federal Air. Destinations from the airport include Cape Town, Durban, Johannesburg, Sabi-Sabi, Skukuza, and Timbavati for domestic, and Livingstone and Vilankulo for regional-international.

The city of Nelspruit in north-eastern South Africa is situated on the Crocodile River, approximately 110 kilometres or 68 miles by road west of the Mozambique border, and 330 kilometres or 210 miles east of Johannesburg, the largest city in the country. Nelspruit serves as a major stopover point for those going to Kruger National Park as well as to Mozambique. The city is also the location of Emnotweni Casino complex on the way to White River.
