Cape Town International Airport

As South Africa’s second-largest airport, Cape Town International Airport welcomes millions of passengers each year, many of whom have traveled from distant lands to enjoy the beauty of the Mother City and the Western Cape. Bearing in mind that Cape Town International Airport is likely to be the first contact that many international tourists will have with South Africa en route to exploring the wonders of the Western Cape, Airports Company South Africa (ACSA) strives to maintain high standards, providing visitors with all the amenities one would expect at a world-class airport.

Located 22 kilometers from the Cape Town city center, the airport had more than 7.2 million passengers arriving and departing on over 60,000 aircraft in 2007 and it is anticipated that by 2015 around 14 million passengers will pass through the airport. Having been a host city for the 2010 FIFA World Cup, Cape Town and its airport proved capable of efficiently handling the significant increase in passengers passing through its doors. Plans are underway to ensure that Cape Town International Airport continues to meet the needs of ever increasing passenger numbers, while at the same time living up to its hard-earned reputation which has resulted in many awards, including the 2005 Skytrax Best Airport in Africa award and the World Travel Awards’ leading airport in Africa for four consecutive years, from 2001 to 2004. Certainly, passengers can be assured of a warm and professional welcome at Cape Town International Airport.
