OR Tambo International Airport (Johannesburg): No more public announcements for domestic flights!

Airports Company South Africa (Acsa), the state-owned airport management company that operates South Africa's nine major airports, has announced that OR Tambo International Airport (JNB) in Johannesburg will no longer make public announcements for domestic flights, such as calls for missing passengers or regular boarding calls. From 15 November 2017, terminal announcements will only be made for irregular operations such as gate changes‚ flight time changes‚ security matters‚ system failures and customer service anomalies such as lost minors. According to OR Tambo International Airport spokesperson Leigh Gunkel-Keuler, the silencing of the public address microphone for domestic flights is an effort in reducing the noise pollution at airports.
