Cape Town International Airport

Cape Town International Airport flies just over eight million passengers a year from its two terminals. A total makeover includes an elevated road to ease access to the terminals, an additional multi-storey car park and a brand-new Central Terminal Building (CTB), catering for both international and domestic travellers.
