Cape Town International Airport has created quite a buzz this November with its new central terminal building, which will soon welcome thousands of travellers for the 2010 World Cup.

The new terminal has come with many improvements, such as a centralised security check point, a new drop-off zone, a viewing deck, five new air-bridges, over 74 new shops and restaurants and a 200m-long departure hall that has 20 self-service check-in kiosks and 120 check-in counters.

With the 2010 World Cup approaching fast, the influx of travellers will be able to manoeuvre comfortably around the airport’s first floor, which now has ample space.

According to the Airports Company South Africa, the terminal has a completely automated luggage system that can handle up to 3 000 suitcases an hour.

The terminal serves both domestic and international passengers on departing flights and will make their travel experience much smoother.
