*daily rates in Upington Airport based on a 1 day rental (24hr period) and for guidance purposes only.

Upington Airport (UTN) is situated in Upington, Northern Cape in South Africa. Upington Airport was built to accommodate a Boeing 747 and as a result has one of the longest runways in the world. The airport flies into the destinations of Cape Town, Johannesburg and Tambo Airport, however most flights are non-scheduled charter flights. It is possible to rent a car direct from Upington Airport and continue your onward journey in a convenient and cost effective manner.

About Car Rental Upington Airport:

The airport has three runways, with one of these measuring at 4,900 metres, making it the longest civilian runway in the Southern Hemisphere. It is one of the few runways that could land a space shuttle. The airport itself is small but there are plans for expansion and passenger numbers are on the increase.

Car Rental Upington Airport

It is possible to fly via Airlink to Cape Town and Johannesburg with around 80 per cent of the passenger traffic being for business purposes. The airport is a convenient place for business travellers to rent a car from as the airport is located just a 5-minute drive away from Upington itself.

Highlights of the area:

The town of Upington is best known for its famous wine. The town exports quality grapes, raisins and wines due to its fertile crops and irrigated fields. With Upington being one of Northern Cape’s largest towns it offers much to see and do.
 
  • If you are visiting on a weekend then a sunset cruise on Sakkie se Arkie is a must. Experience the floating bar while you pass the hours meandering down the river.
  • Upington is the ideal area to experience a 4x4 adventure. The Spitskop Nature Reserve is home to springbok, ostrich and mountain zebra.
  • A historic attraction of interest is the breath-taking Date Palm Avenue. There are more than 200 Date Palm Trees welcoming visitors to the entrance of the Die Eiland Holiday Resort.
