Cape Town International Airport leads arrivals growth
South Africa’s airports experienced a growth in international arrivals for 2015, with Cape Town International Airport ending the year with a notable 8,9% increase, compared with a growth of 6,5% at King Shaka International Airport and 5% at OR Tambo International Airport.
Martin Jansen van Vuuren, Director at Grant Thornton, said Cape Town had seen a growth in international arrivals due to an increase in direct flights to the city, such as the recent deal with Turkish Airlines. He added that more international flights, such as routes serviced by Kenya Airways and Ethiopian Airlines, were also rerouting to Cape Town.
