Bram Fischer International Airport

 

Bram Fischer International Airport is a beautiful airport situated in the heart of  Bloemfontein, which is a city in the Free State.

An interesting fact is that they share their runways with AFB Bloemspruit. They were also one of the airports that had a major revamp done to the airport in preparation of the world cup. The total spent was close on R50 Million’s worth on the renovations.

The airport was renamed Bram Fischer International Airport in 2012 by our current president Jacob Zuma. Before that it was just know as Bloemfontein Airport.

Bram Fisher ( Abram Louis Fischer ), was a South African lawyer and was highly known for his role and beliefs in anti-apartheid. More importantly he was the defense lawyer for some of the worlds biggest idols, that included former president Nelson Mandela. One of the repercussions of defending Nelson Mandela was that Mr Bram Fisher was accused of communism. He was then sentenced to life in prison, but only served 11 years sentence due to him getting terrible sick that caused him to be released. He unfortunately died shortly after he was released.

In return for his great efforts and commitments to the anti-apartheid, Jacob Zuma did him the honor and renamed Bloemfontein airport in his honor.

Bram Fischer International Airport offers a world-class airport operation that caters for more than 400 000 passengers and 20 000 air traffic movements each year.

ACSA has claimed that the airport will continue to uphold Bram Fischer’s name and legacy by facilitating growth and development in the Free State province.
