Economic Development Potential of Upgrading Pretoria Wonderboom Airport

By Urban-Econ Ltd (SA) and Economic Development Research Group (USA), 2003

Pretoria, now part of the City of Tshwane, commissioned a series of studies to evaluate the potential benefits and costs of upgrading the City's Wonderboom Airport for international status. The study of potential economic development and land development impacts was conducted by Urban-Econ, a consultancy in South Africa, together with Economic Development Research Group of the US.

Currently, Johannesburg International Airport serves as the nation's premier international gateway; the proposal for Wonderboom would upgrade it to become a regional gateway for international visitors from Africa, thus serving the large number of foreign embassies and international companies already based in the nation's capital. The research study examined how international flight activity would affect land development in the vicinity of Wonderboom Airport, economic growth in the City of Tshwane, and larger economic spin-off for the manufacturing and tourism economies of Gauteng province. It built upon the Airport Development Economics (ADE) model, which has been applied by staff of EDR Group for airports in Europe, Asia and the US.
