Mayor Dan Plato went on a tour of the airport yesterday and encouraged tourists and local passengers to vote in the World Travel Awards.
A few weeks ago, Mayor Plato visited Table Mountain, which is up for another major award.
‘Cape Town International Airport (CTIA) is a world-class facility and is a worthy contender for the World’s Leading Airport award. The Airport is a vibrant and busy space which processes 11 million passengers each year. The facility is the first impression that people get when arriving in the city and tourists and locals experience its efficiency. The airport has already been recognised as the best on the continent and we are now aiming to make it the best airport in the world. We are competing against Dubai, Cancun and Melbourne, among others, for the global title and we need your vote to take home this award.’
Cape Town is currently the holder of the ‘World’s Leading Festival and Events Destination’.
At the recent Africa and Indian Ocean World Travel Awards in June this year, Cape Town was again voted ‘Africa’s Leading Festival and Events Destination’ for the second consecutive time.
Table Mountain won the title of ‘Africa’s Leading Tourist Attraction’ and Cape Town International Airport won ‘Africa’s Leading Airport’. All three contenders are now in the running for the prestigious world title at the 2019 World Travel Awards.

Voting closes at midnight on 20 October 2019.
