Bitou Municipality in partnership with Cemair launched the first day of operation for Cemair who brought scheduled flights back to Plettenberg Bay Airport after nearly a decade, on Friday 28 March. Mr. Kevin Grinacker, who was the master of ceremonies for the day, could recall the era of the gravel runway Plettenberg Bay Airport had somewhat ±30 years ago.

The facilities in and around the terminal building has been improved with:

  • Check-in counter
  • Luggage handling and screening
  • Neatly designed waiting area
  • Catering for scheduled flights
  • Beautiful landscaping of the gardens
  • A new look for the building etc.

Plettenberg Bay Airport now boasts with a scheduled airline flying in over weekends, and it is foreseen that the demand for flights will increase and the frequency of flights will be expanded during the week. This will not only benefit the small minority that makes use of the Airport, but  will indirectly  linked to job creation.

Executive Mayor of Bitou, Councillor Memory Booysen was very delighted at the dawning of this day and as the highlight of the day was him signing the Memorandum of Understanding withMr. Miles van der Molen, CEO of Cemair He further stated that Bitou Council has identified 13 projects which they want to initiate during 2014, and Friday 28 March is seen as the first of those 13 projects to take flight.
