This zone consists mostly of land that is currently owned by the Airport Company and utilised for the airport and related structures. The airport maintains its own development framework, relating to the land which belongs to the Airport Company. Land uses within the zone need to be subsidiary and related to the basic functions of the airport and any proposals for development must be done in collaboration with the municipality. Significant extensions to the George Airport are in an advanced stage and include upgrading the terminal from six to eight boarding gates, additional lounge and concourse space as well as new cargo facilities to accommodate additional passenger and cargo activity.

Plans are on the table for mixed spatial development east of the airport with potential to accommodate support land uses that render support services to the airport facilities or that provide a direct service to tourists. It is aimed at providing opportunities for land uses that are reconcilable with the airport, such as freight and logistics companies, manufacturing and tourist facilities. This zone is intended for the area between the existing R404 and the new future realignment of the western by-pass.

The planned Gwayang and Airport precincts ensures that the concept of a Regional SEZ takes shape and it is envisaged that the Agri-Processing sector as proposed may be accommodated in this development. The Gwayang development is also bordering the larger of George’s waste water treatment plants, where investigations are under way to establish a Regional Anaerobic Organic Waste Digestor – manufacturing amongst others fertiliser for the agricultural sector and possible biogas applications
