When you arrive at the airport there are several parking options. There are metered and licensed taxis available outside the arrivals level. For a cheaper option you could go for a rideshare. Available rideshares are Bolt and Uber.

Public transport:

  • By bus: MyCiti Airport Bus Services provides bus transport at the airport. This allows you to quickly travel to or from the center. The terminal station is Civic Center Bus Station. There are arrivals every 20 minutes between 5 am and 9:30 pm. The journey by bus takes about 25 minutes. From the bus station you can also travel on with other bus lines to get to your final destination.
  • By train: however, there is not a train station directly at the airport. For that you would have to travel to Cape Town Railway Station which is about 21 km away. This can easily be done by taxi or a rideshare. From the train station you can continue your journey to many destinations in South Africa.
Terminal Cape Town Airport

For the drop-off zone, continue until just before the terminal. You arrive at level 2 in front of the check-in counters. You can go to the departure area through security. This is divided into 2 parts. The international and domestic arrivals. This is also the case with arrivals. At international Cape Town arrivals you must first go through the passport control and then to the baggage reclaim area. With domestic flights you can go directly to the baggage belts. Then there is a communal meet & great area to end up at transport plaza.

History Cape Town Airport

The current airport replaced Wingfield Aerodrome in 1954. Initially there were mainly domestic and regional flight routes. There were some direct flights to the UK and later in 1977 even to Rio de Janeiro. After the Apartheid in the 90s, the airport took over ownership. The state sold it to Airports Company South Africa. Soon there was a flight to Miami with the airline South African Airways. This changed to Fort Lauderdale and later even to Atlanta. The growth of the airport increased from 6 million in 2004 to almost 11 million in 2019. In the meantime, the necessary changes have been made. The terminal has been renovated and renewed several times. The capacity had to be increased as well as the length of the runways.
