Car Rental Germiston Rand Airport

Rand Airport is located in Germiston, 38.5km from Johannesburg, South Africa. Built in the 1920s as Johannesburg's principal airport, it was replaced, first by Palmietfontein Airport in the late 1940s, and then by Jan Smuts International Airport (now O. R. Tambo International Airport) in the 1950s. Today, the airport is home to air charter operators, flying schools and several aircraft maintenance organisations. It also hosts a popular annual air show.

About Germiston

Considered part of Greater Johannesburg, Germiston is a city in the East Rand of Gauteng in South Africa. It dates from the early days of the gold rush, when prospectors John Jack from Germiston near Glasgow and August Simmer from Vacha in Germany struck gold on the farm of Elandsfontein. The Rand Refinery was established at Germiston in 1921, growing to become the world's largest gold refinery, with 70% of the planet's mined gold passing through it.
