Fixed Base Operations

We are pleased to inform you that Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport (FAKN-MQP) has established its own Fixed Based Operations (FBO).  KMI Airport, as we are commonly known, now offers their general aviation clients support services when they visit our airport.  Both domestic and international movements may choose from a comprehensive list of services offered by our FBO services department.

KMI Airport is strategically positioned to serve the City of Mbombela (Nelspruit) which is a mere 23km by road from the airport while White River is only 14 km by road.  A 30-minute drive from KMI Airport will take you to the entrance gates of the world famous Kruger National Park.

Our dedicated and well experienced FBO team will ensure general aviation clients all receive a high quality service by accommodating their specific needs.

KMI Airport is the holder of a category 8 South African Civil Aviation Aerodrome Licence and provides all government departments for international arrivals and departures. KMI Airport is therefore ready to assist with all VIP, Diplomatic and Crisis movements.

We provide a comprehensive range of services varying from Ground handling to basic concierge services, including passenger, crew & baggage handling through customs, immigrations and port of health procedures, booking and securing accommodation including transfers, coordinating full service fuelling (JetA1 & AVGAS available) and aircraft cleaning as well as organising inflight catering and laundry services.

KMI Airport offers three elegant lounge facilities based in the airport terminal building that are available to crew and passengers where they can relax before or after a long flight.  You may also prefer to relax in our Fever Tree Bar where you can savour our exceptional coffees, local craft beers and cocktails.

At KMI Airport your peace of mind is our priority.  There is 24hour security and camera surveillance throughout the entire airport as well as on the ramp and apron area.  KMI airport has a fenced off 3.1 km runway, a 4 E CAT 8 Fire & Rescue and complies with all South African Civil Aviation Authority rules and regulations.
