Cape Town International Airport is open for business travel

Cape Town International Airport is ready, for now, to welcome business travellers to the Mother City.

Deon Cloete, general manager at the airport, said his team was doing everything possible to ensure the safety of passengers and staff.

RE-BUILDING THE TRAVEL AND TOURISM ECONOMY

“As part of the easing of restrictions, Cape Town International Airport will play an important role in re-building the travel and tourism economy,” said Cloete. “We recognise the importance of regaining passenger trust by protecting their health and wellness, and that of our staff and all visitors to the airport.”

Cape Town International will be relying on passengers to comply and to support the new safety regulations.

While limited air travel will be permitted, with restrictions on the number of flights per day, the increase in economic activity in sectors that are permitted to resume operations is welcomed, Cloete said.

“At this stage, no scheduled international commercial flights will be processed, however, we will continue to process international repatriation flights. While we do not anticipate large volumes at this stage, an easy start up allows us to test our new ways of working.”
