Opened in 1952, Johannesburg / OR Tambo International Airport (FAOR) is the largest airport in South Africa, and the busiest. It is also a major gateway for tourist traffic and located 24 kilometers (15 mi) from the Johannesburg city center.

OR Tambo International Airport is bordered by the suburbs of Alberton, Brakpan, Germiston and Kempton Park. It was established in 1952 as the Jan Smuts International Airport, named after Field Marshal Jan Christian Smuts, who was the Prime Minister of the Union of South Africa from 1919 to 1924 and from 1939 to 1948 as well as a staunch opposer of “Apartheid”.

In 2006 the airport was renamed to OR (Oliver Reginald) Tambo International Airport, after the former president of the African National Congress (ANC), hence the change in the Airport ID from FAJS to FAOR.

  1. Let’s begin by looking at what this airport offers. The buildings are ok; they are not great, but the detail is there. Is there room for improvement? Most certainly! Is it frame rate friendly? Of that there is no question. I have a mediocre system (Intel I7 8th gen, nVidia 1060 graphics card) and I can fly into FAOR with any commercial aircraft. For me that is a huge plus! The last thing you want after a long flight is pauses and stutters. With this airport you will not get that; smooth all the way! The ILS, PAPI’s and night lights are all super accurate. Many commercial developers overlook that part! The flow of AI Traffic is also well taken care of. You will not get sudden stops or freezes and then get stuck behand an AI aircraft that cannot figure out where it needs to be. The service vehicles also do not cross the runway or feel the sudden urge to taxi right in front of you as it needs to visit an empty parking bay at the other end of the airport! They stick to the pre-defined paths that have been laid out for them. For me it is all these little things that add up and that is why I strongly believe that this airport is with a five star rating.

  3. Ground markings and parking’s are accurate and overall, an improvement to vanilla FAOR. The models are sub-standard and not what one would expect from MSFS 2020 scenery. Buildings are sparse and a lot of detail is missing. Texturing looks more like it belongs in FSX. Although an improvement to the stock airport, I would not recommend this product if you’re into detail and accuracy. It is, however, FPS friendly due to its simplicity.
