Transportation delays to and from Lanseria International Airport (HLA), serving Johannesburg, are to be anticipated on Monday, September 3, due to a planned protest near the airport. Protesters are reportedly expected to march from Cosmo City beginning at 09:00 (local time) along Malibongwe Road (R512), to various businesses in the area, including the airport. The demonstration is scheduled to conclude at 13:00. Although local authorities have indicated that they will be on hand to ensure that the march does not impact access to the airport, delays are possible and airport management has advised passengers to allow for longer travel time to reach HLA on Monday.
Monday's protest march has been organized by Lanseria area community members over various issues, notably a lack of employment opportunities and service delivery issues.
Potentially affected travelers are advised to monitor developments to the situation, to allow for extra time to reach destinations surrounding HLA on September 3, and to contact their airline or the airport directly for more information.
