O.R. Tambo International Airport - Johannesburg, South Africa

Today, the Toilets of the World Blog brings you a toilet from O.R. Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg.

Formerly know as Jan Smuts International, then Johannesburg International and now O.R. Tambo International, this is Africa's busiest airport with the capacity to handle up to 28, 000, 000 passengers annually. It holds the distinction of having received the worlds first jetliner flight (a de Havilland Comet) with fare-paying passengers from London Heathrow Airport and is one of only a few airports in the world that has direct flights to all 6 inhabited continents.

In 2006 O.R. Tambo Airport made the news after gunmen armed with AK-47 assault rifles held up guards and police while helping themselves to bags of currency flown in from Britain. The South Africa Police Service managed to quickly recover most of the stolen cash. The recovered cash was promptly re-stolen from the Benoni police station two months later.

The toilet, as you can see, is much less exciting.
