Bloemfontein Airport was originally built in the early 1960s for use by the South African Air Force. Construction of the runways was a priority and the terminal buildings were added a little later. Today the airport handles a mixture of international and domestic flights with many passengers making use of cheap car hire at Bloemfontein Airport to help them to see the city.
The airport is quite a busy facility as it serves South Africa's Free State province in addition to the city. The two main airlines that use the airport are Mango and South African Airways and the majority of their flights accommodate travel within the country. Car rental at Bloemfontein Airport tends to be a popular choice here with many of the business travellers.
Bloemfontein Airport caters very well for business travellers with meeting rooms and their own separate lounge area. Facilities for domestic passengers are equally excellent and include a bar, restaurant, cash machines, currency exchange bureau, coffee shop and several rental agencies providing car hire at Bloemfontein Airport.
The main destinations served by Bloemfontein Airport are Johannesburg and Cape Town and many of the passengers who arrive here are heading for the city.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?
To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card.
