Cape Town International Airport is South Africa's second largest airport. Its service ranks among the highest in the world and has earned the World Travel Award for Africa’s leading airport for the last seven years running.
As a tourist’s first encounter with South Africa, often en route to the numerous attractions of the Western Cape, the airport plays an important representative role. That’s why we constantly strive to deliver everything the traveller needs to make their journey as swift and comfortable as possible. But the airport is not just the gateway to Southern Africa's premier tourist destination. A burgeoning economy around Cape Town International Airport offers many exceptional commercial and property development opportunities.
The exponential growth in both tourist and commercial traffic has seen the airport grow rapidly since 1994, with aircraft movements now exceeding 60,000 a year. Moreover, with the rising popularity of the Western Cape, as well as the forthcoming 2010 football world cup, passenger numbers are expected to increase from 7.2 million in 2006 to 14 million by 2015. Cape Town International Airport will cater for these changing needs with an expansion plan that promises minimum disruption to visitors and sensitive handling of the local environment.
