Cape Town International tops

2012-03-09 20:11

Cape Town - Cape Town International Airport has been named the best airport in Africa by an international association of the world's airports, the Western Cape government said on Friday.

The award was made by the Airports Council International, which surveys passengers on their views of different airports.

Its Airport Service Quality awards have become an international benchmark for how a good airport should look and should treat its passengers.

Western Cape tourism MEC Alan Winde said about 200 airports participated in the survey.

"We are thrilled that Cape Town International has been named the best airport in Africa," he said.

Winde said the award was a result of the provincial government, the Airports Company South Africa (Acsa) and local people working together.

Acsa general manager Deon Cloete said South Africans were competing well in the global arena.

"We are proud that we are able to do our bit in making this great city and province a better place for all concerned," he said.
