About Cape Town Airport
Cape Town International Airport is situated 20 km (12 miles) from Cape Town City Centre in the Matroosfontein district of the city.
Cape Town International Airport opened in 1954, replacing Wingfield Aerodrome, originally named DF Malan after the then South African Prime Minister. With the fall of Aparteid in the early 1990's, the airport came under the control of the newly formed Airports Company South Africa (ACSA) and along with this, it was officially renamed as Cape Town International Airport, often abbreviated as "CTIA".
Cape Town Airport underwent some major reconstruction and improvement works in readiness for the FIFA 2010 World Cup Finals. Due to it's recent expansion, an evaluation is underway to build a 2nd runway that is capable of accommodating larger aircraft and further renovation work has already started on both the domestic and the international airport terminals.
The airport is currently 2nd largest airport in South Africa and the 5rd largest airport on the African continent. The airport served 10.7 million passengers in 2017/2018.
Its formal aviation references are: IATA Airport Code - CPT and ICAO Airport Code - FACT
