Cape Town is not only the home to Table Mountain, one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature, but also has won the Best Airport in Africa for the sixth consecutive year at the annual Skytrax World Airport Award. 


The recognition comes from the people’s vote on Skytrax website, which has also chosen the airport to win the Best Airport Staff in Africa and the Cleanest Airport in Africa categories.


The Western Cape Province, where the airport is located, stated that the award is “even more significant considering the challenging year that the travel industry has experienced. The province will be ready to welcome visitors to Cape Town and the Western Cape when the tourism and travel industry recovers, which is critical to the province’s strategy to save jobs and rebuild the economy”.
