The public can today expect 600 more parking bays which will be made available at the Cape Town International Airport.

According to a statement the airport will introduce a second multi storey parkade which is set to begin in July this year. This will see 2000 more parking bays after construction work is completed.

This comes after the airports first multi storey parkade last year ensured more parking spaces. However this only eliminated strain on parking capacity for a short period, as passenger numbers went up again.

Deidre Hendriks , Communications Manager, Airports Company South Africa says that they decide to enable a remote site for airport staff and free up as much parking as possible for visitors.

“Although a second multi storey parkade will soon come on stream we’re certain that these additional bays will be welcomed by our airport users. “, says Hendriks.

She says currently the airport is busy with construction activity as the R1.3 billion airport transformation continues. “Work on the Central Terminal building is well underway and the work on the new elevated road, similar to that of O.Tambo International Airport, will begin shortly.” says Hendriks.

There is an appeal to airport users to make sure that they arrive at the airport early in order to have sufficient time to park; check-in and move pass security.
