As far as SA Blog can tell, this is the only guide to Umtata Airport on the web (try and find another which lists the airport manager’s office number!) – giving you an indication of its importance in the grand scheme of things. (The airport, not, erm, SA Blog.)




In view of its proximity to the Wild Coast, however, Umtata Airport definitely merits an entry of its own. The Wild Coast is quite remote from SA’s major centers, and any means of cutting down commute time en route to unhurried holiday bliss is to be welcomed.
