Cape Town international airport set for arrivals


Cape Town International Airport is getting ready to kick-start the Western Cape’s tourism industry again.

Permission has only been given to one of three airports to receive international tourists from October.

The airport has made use of different methods to curb the risk of COVID-19.

They’ve made available screens that will give information about COVID-19 containment measures, thermal screeners, social distancing, and adapted training for airport staff.

Western Cape Economic Opportunities MEC David Maynier said:

We are going to be looking at potential in source markets other than our traditional source markets, particularly in the source markets in the regions which all the evidence suggests is great potential for the Western Cape.”
