It comes as no surprise that the Mother City’s very own Cape Town International Airport has been named Africa’s best airport yet again, this time at the 2019 World Travel Awards over the weekend.

Locals can beam with pride after the announcement that our airport is the leading one in the country, while it is only Africa’s third-largest airport, Cape Town International is a premier tourist destination.

Each year, Cape Town International is recognized not only by the World Travel Awards but also Skytrax for its outstanding service and consistent performance that ranks among some of the best in the world.

Earlier this year in March, the airport was also named the best in Africa by the Skytrax World Airport Awards and the accolades just keep coming.

This is not the only win Cape Town took home from the 2019 World Travel Awards; local establishment The Pepper Club Hotel was named the country’s best city hotel and The Twelve Apostles Hotel & Spa took home Africa’s best luxury hotel.
