Since the abolishment of apartheid in 1994 and the reformation of the Republic of South Africa's government, the continent's most southernmost nation has been open for business, both regionally and internationally, and trade has been deemed “vital.”
Accordingly, South Africa and its largest and most dynamic city — Johannesburg — have emerged as popular destinations for international business aviation. The post-apartheid financial climate has also stimulated indigenous business aviation in the country, involving both company-operated and chartered aircraft. (As of 2010, some 2,500 turbine-powered aircraft — both general aviation and airline equipment — were registered in country.)
