Passengers at Cape Town international airport can make use of 600 new parking bays following the relocation of staff parking to a remote site. The move is a temporary measure to relieve pressure on parking at the airport pending the construction of a new multi-storey facility with 2,000 additional spaces later this year. The new car park is part of a R1.3 billion expansion project aimed at increasing the capacity of the airport in time for the 2010 football world cup in South Africa and in response to the growing number of visitors to the Cape.
The development includes the integration of the existing domestic departures and arrivals terminals into one large departures terminal for both domestic and international traffic. A separate arrivals terminal for domestic and international passengers will be created on a lower floor. The new integrated terminal will be in addition to the existing international arrivals and departures terminals, which opened in 2001 and 2003 respectively, and will be served by an elevated road separating traffic for departures and arrivals.
