Cape Town International Airport hits 10 million passenger milestone in 2016
Cape Town - Cape Town International Airport (CTIA) served just over 10 million passengers during last year - highlighting the airport's tremendous growth during the previous twelve months.
In an announcement on Tuesday, 10 January, the airport described the achievement as a major milestone.
CTIA is the second busiest airport in South Africa and third busiest in Africa. In 2015, the airport counted in excess of the 9.4 million passengers which passed through its doors.
In 2016, four days before the start of the New Year, CTIA hit the 10-million mark.
Passengers arriving at the airport on 28 December 2016 were notified that one of them would likely be the 10 millionth passenger to pass through the Western Cape airport in a single year. While it might have been just another journey for passengers passing through the airport, it was a major achievement for Cape Town as a whole.
