    Cape Town International Airport in Cape Town
    Winner of several awards (after being revamped for the 2010 Soccer World Cup) and top rated by the review community, the airport is modern, clean and well laid out. Access to all parts of the Mother City is quick and easy and, above all, it's just a fairly uncomplicated and uncluttered place to fly from.

    When Cape Town International Airport did their revamp, I honestly believe they considered positions, type of shops required, type of restaurants required, parking etc. well in advance. There is a great selection of everything here and the prices are very similar to what we pay anywhere else. Being dropped off upstairs for domestic flights or downstairs for international flights makes no difference - everything is well marked, staff are there to assist with any information you require, the place is clean and it works!! My only gripe is where the banking ATMs are positioned. I understand that for security reasons they are away from the shops and restaurants, but they need to be better marked and possibly closer - so inconvenient having to walk such a distance with heavy suitcases just because you need some cash!!

    The CT Airport has many perks, but a few small things could be improved. Parking is plenty, but more signs need to be put up to guide visitors. Plenty of stores, with lots of variety is quite useful. Nice and spacious Airport, one of the best I've seen.

    I always tag along to the airport whenever I get a chance, because it turns into sucha fun and exciting experience for me. I never get tired of visiting it. So many shops, all these different faces, watching the places land and take-off is amazing

    We visited Cape Town earlier this year and I was so impressed by their airport which is clean, staff are happy and willing to assist one with everything be it check in, baggage. The shops are amazing. Very impressed by Woollies as we did not get a meal on our cheap flight we were able to buy fresh rolls and snacks for our trip back to Joburg. Cannot wait to visit Cape Town again!!!

    Flew back to Johannesburg last night and, as always, was so impressed with Cape Town Airport. There were staff manning the "boarding pass machines", there were staff ready to collect luggage, there were staff sweeping all over - no wonder this airport works so smartly. Kulula staff were great and everything ran smoothly.

    Cape Town International Airport is the perfect size to not be intimidating, it is well run and very clean. Good restaurants and shops and a feeling of safety and security in and outside the airport. They do not have many International flights which for Cape Town people must be rather irritating (as it is for Durban people) to have to pay extra to travel internationally because you have to first fly to Joburg before getting an International flight. This is something that needs to be worked on as with the major International airports like Durban and Cape Town you are only allowed 20kg luggage to JHB but yet you are allowed 30kg to your actual destination. This results in you limiting your luggage and you cannot bring back what you hoped to. You can leave from Bangkok for example with 30kgs, but once you reach JHB and need to get your connecting flight to either CT or DBN you have to get rid of an extra 10kgs which poses a huge problem. I really think this poses a problem in these cities, surely the Airports company should be made aware of this?

    What a wonderful airport, clean, bright and you are surrounded by smiling faces willing to help you with everything. It is safe and the parking is just right, the amenities sparkling and information at every corner. The best part about this airport is that there are no long walks in departures or arrivals and when you leave the airport you can catch a bus that will take you just about anywhere.

    The best part of flying into this airport was the wonderful view of Table Mountain from the air!!! The pilots really make an effort to guide the plane so that everyone can see the Mountain.

    I loved walking around the airport - lovely shops and plenty of eating places.

    My hubby has family in Cape Town so we fly down often to see them. Cape Town Airport, since its revamp, is spectacular!! The line shops are lovely, I just LURVE the Woollies and often sneak in there before we get picked up and there is a great selection of restaurants. There is always somewhere for me to charge my phone when I come back to Johannesburg, the place is clean and very well run.

    We flew to Cape Town for a week in December and I went down on business last week. Had a chance to look around this time and was really impressed. The building is on a par with any other international airport, massive amount of restaurants, good "memento shops", nice kiddies clothing shops advertising either Cape Town or Table Mountain. Traffic police ensure you dont "overstay your welcome" in the Drop & Go area - well run, clean and safe!!

    Not having been to CTIA since before it's revamp for the World Cup, I was genuinely highly impressed with all aspects. Basic design great, with logical and intuitive levels and positioning , and signage for each activity. All was logical (unlike ORTI, which is plain (neat) "Heath Robinson" ?). My only minor critique was a slightly worn look to the gents toilets on departure level. Otherwise all was great, and the impression created for new visitors (and especially international tourists) is excellent [First impressions are soo lasting ?] . Has my vote for SA's best airport. And finally, last but not least, the general attitude of the people - at the shops, in airport company duty, is positive, pleasant, and proactive .... puts the cherry on the top !

    Since Cape Town Airport had their revamp I can see a huge improvement!! The "Drop and Go" areas are great with police ensuring that's exactly what you do. The staff are well informed and the areas are well colour coded ie - I can see the green Kulula area or the orange Mango areas without having to ask anyone. The "boarding pass" machines are great and there is always someone manning them or offering assistance. The shops are good and the amount of seats for you to sit on while waiting for your flight is excellent. Well done Cape Town

    This airport is neat and just big enough to cope with all the tourists, there are no unnecessary shops or restaurants, it is actually perfect as an airport, easy to navigate your way around and super friendly staff who are willing to help in any way possible. I found it to be safe with enough parking, the car hire companies are quite a distance but they do have a golf cart that takes you directly there.
