Margate Airport (MGH) in Margate, a seaside resort town on the South Coast of KwaZulu-Natal, is getting a facelift. The upgrade includes the extension of the airport's arrivals section, the refurbishment of ablution facilities as well as a new building for car hire services and a controlled paid parking area with a boom gate system. The facelift of Margate Airport wil cost about R10m (€505 266), which are provided by the KwaZulu-Natal Department of Economic Development, Tourism and Environmental Affairs. The sod-turning ceremony already took place on 26 June 2020. The project is expected to be completed in around six months. We'll keep you posted!
As of today (15 September 2020), only South African privately owned airline CemAir is operating scheduled flights to Margate Airport (MGH). The airline offers a four weekly service between OR Tambo International Airport (JNB) in Johannesburg and Margate.
