Cape Town International Airport opened the new Central Terminal Building in November 2009, connecting the domestic and international terminals and boosting a new retail section of 74 stores.
The Ground Floor mall caters for all arriving passengers as well as departing passengers before check in on the 2nd floor. The Ground Floor has a food court offering the traveller - and their loved ones - a variety of quick bites to eat or that early fresh cup of coffee while you wait for your loved ones to arrive or even have a meeting before you depart. Furthermore, Woolworths is available on your arrival, for that last minute pre packed dinner so you don't need to stop anywhere else on the way home. A wide variety of fashion, accessories and luggage stores are available for your convenience.
Need to kill some time or satisfy a hunger? Don’t worry, the 4 food & beverage outlets, in the Domestic departure terminal, will keep you entertained while you wait.. Two are also available in the International departure terminal. Browse our African souvenir stores, while you wait for your departure time, or get that book or magazine to keep you company on the plane.
It is advisable that you arrive early for your flight. Generally, a traveller is expected at the airport one hour prior to a domestic departure and three hours prior to an international one.
