Cape Town International Airport (CTIA) has been voted ‘Best airport in Africa’ for the fifth consecutive year by the Skytrax World Airport Awards.

“This is a massive vote of confidence in our airport and I congratulate the CTIA, their team and all those involved in making this fantastic achievement possible, especially during these trying times,” said City of Cape Town’s Mayoral Committee Member for Economic Opportunities and Asset Management, James Vos.

Vos added that the airport was central to the city’s Economic Action Plan, setting out recovery from the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The city will continue our partnership with CTIA to market Cape Town, because we need to stay top of mind for when travel is allowed to resume and to ensure that we can welcome tourists back,” he said.
