Cape Town International Airport is the 2nd largest airport in the ACSA network and Africa’s 3rd largest airport. It is also Africa’s premier tourist and VIP destination and has established a reputation as Africa’s premier international award-winning airport, consistently performing among the best in the world for service in its category.
Despite the magnitude and complexity of the renovations which were finalised in May 2010, the airport consistently delivered top-notch service, leading to it being voted the Best Airport in Africa and Best Airport in Africa for Staff Service Excellence in the 2009 Skytrax awards. It also received the 2009 award for AETRA’s as 3rd Best airport for service excellence.
The airport’s expansion began in 2005 when work on the airport’s first multi-storey parkade began and all construction work concluded in May 2010. This transformation has been undertaken at a cost of over R 2 billion and has been done in order to serve our customers better into the future.
The first part of the transformation was the commissioning of the airport’s first multi-storey car park, significantly increasing the airport’s parking capacity while enhancing the overall parking offering. This development was followed by a number of others including the opening of the Central Terminal Building which sees both International and Domestic Departures being processed in the same space. All this will secure capacity for the airport’s forecast traffic until approximately 2015.
