Reply to @ptomblin: Not an answer to your question but some 'trivia' - On Lufthansa's Airbus 380 between Or Tambo and Frankfurt they consistently show the departure airport (Johannesburg) as Olifants River Bridge on their in flight maps !!!

Reply to @Pivot: I believe in that case that David (the owner of this site) has been assigning arbitrary ids to airports that don't have an official designator.

I wrote the senior manager for aerodromes and facilities in South Africa and he says "Olifants is not a licensed aerodrome therefore I cannot confirm their locator". So there is no ICAO ident for this airport. Now what?

Reply to @ptomblin: From what I've been told Olifants never had an ICAO ident. FAOR was used for a now decommissioned airport. So I don't know what we can now use for Olifants.

FAOR is now the designator for the largest airport in South/

The ICAO designator for this airfield is now the designator for O.R Tambo International Airport ( Previously FAJS). Thus: FAOR is now the designator for the largest airport in South/ern Africa.
