Posted 30 January 2019 · Add Comment

Airports Company South Africa’s airports serving Cape Town and Durban have been named Africa’s best in the 2019 Skytrax World Airport Awards.

 

The awards will be presented to Airports Company South Africa in London in March 2019.

Air travellers voted Cape Town International Airport the Best Airport in Africa. This is the second year running that Cape Town International Airport secured this award and the airport has been recognised in the Skytrax Awards on multiple occasions.

King Shaka International Airport in Durban won this year’s award for Best Regional Airport in Africa and Best Airport serving 5-10 million passengers. The airport has been recognised previously in the Skytrax awards.

The 2019 Skytrax World Airports Awards are a measurement of customer satisfaction across airports globally. The awards are administered independently and based on surveys of passenger opinion.

The World Airport Awards began in 1999 and received 13.73 million eligible entries from passengers for the latest survey.

Skytrax focuses on delivering a customer survey and airport awards process that is independent, impartial and global. A central directive of the survey is for customers to make their own personal choices as to which airport they consider to be the best.

Bongiwe Mbomvu, Airports Company South Africa’s Acting CEO said: “We are very proud of Cape Town International Airport and King Shaka International Airport for again achieving top honours. These accolades affirm the dedication and continued efforts of our staff to make the airport experience for local and international travellers an exceptional one.”
