None of the major airlines operate regular flights from Johannesburg to Plettenberg Bay.
In 2007 it was reported that SA Airlink was preparing for its inaugural flight from Johannesburg to Plettenberg Bay in September 2007. Bitou municipal manager George Seitisho said on the 3rd July: “We hope, weather permitting, to be up and running by the end of September. We will be considered as an alternative regional airport, assisting when there are landing problems in George or Port Elizabeth. Tourists don‘t want to have to drive for an hour after landing in George before they get to their destination.”
The municipality would need to clear alien vegetation from the airport, build a security fence and extend the runway by 100m. SA Airlink would operate a direct route between Plettenberg Bay and Johannesburg, and later on flights between Cape Town and Plettenberg Bay were in the plans.
"Current upgrading is being done by the municipality on its own but we are still working on a public private partnership for the running and maintenance of the Plettenberg Bay aerodrome." says Seitisho
