Cape Town named Africa’s Best Airport 2024


Cape Town International Airport has been recognized as the top airport in Africa, according to a recent survey by Skytrax, a leading consumer ratings organization. This accolade reflects the airport's dedication to providing excellent customer service and efficient operations.

While celebrating this regional success, Cape Town International Airport has experienced a slight drop in its global ranking, currently standing at 54th place, down from 23rd in 2020. This change highlights the dynamic nature of international air travel and the evolving standards in the aviation industry.

Other South African airports also received praise in the survey, with Durban's King Shaka International Airport taking the second spot and OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg claiming third place on the continental list.

This showcases the high standards maintained by airports in South Africa, solidifying their reputation as key gateways to the African continent.

Beyond South Africa, Addis Ababa Bole International Airport in Ethiopia secured a respectable seventh place in the African rankings. This reflects Ethiopia's emergence as a regional hub for international travel and trade.

Further north, Nairobi's Jomo Kenyatta International Airport secured the 10th position, highlighting Kenya's enduring role in African aviation. Nairobi continues to play a crucial role in connecting East Africa to the global air transport network.

The Skytrax survey sheds light on the broader trends shaping the African aviation landscape, as airports strive to enhance passenger experiences and operational efficiency amid evolving industry dynamics and heightened traveler expectations.
