Cape Town Airport wins overall at Routes African 2016 Marketing Awards

Posted 29 June 2016 · Add Comment

Cape Town Airport has been announced as the winner of the Routes Africa edition of the Routes 2016 Marketing Awards.

The awards recognise success in airport marketing, for supporting support the successful launch of new routes or the development of existing ones.
 
Cape Town Airport’s passenger numbers inflated by 10% to just under 9.7 million last year.
 
The airport also has a strong capital investment programme, which covers realignment of its runway in order to handle larger aircraft and a new domestic arrivals lounge.
 
“This growth is not only attributable to the inherent attractions of the province, the resourcefulness and ingenuity of its citizens and its well-positioned growth sectors, but also to its access to global markets,” said a Cape Town International Airport official.
 
Winning the award automatically adds Cape Town Airport to the shortlist for the World Routes Awards in Chengdu, China on 26 September 2016.
