my dad flew lufthansa to Cape Town from Canada and they stopped in Joburg and than people from an earlier Lufthansa flight joined his plane because apparently they only allowed Lufthansa to fly into Cape Town X amount of times a day which was less than they were allowed to fly into Joburg they said it was done to protect South Africa's local airlines

Uhm, I think it's important to say when this was...a few years ago, 2 to 4 years, Lufthansa did not yet operate direct flights to CPT on a daily basis. But they did have daily flights from Frankfurt and Munich to JNB. The FRA flight usually continued on to CPT, and thus the MUC pax were allowed to switch to that flight.
Since then they've dropped MUC service, and have daily flights to both JNB and CPT (during southern hemisphere summer season).

Construction Update: 29 October 2008

Very Impressed with the progress being made at CTIA. Taken this morning...
This is the terminal being expanded for the FIFA WC 2010 and should be fully operational in Dec 2009.

From Domestic Terminal


The reason Domestic is temporarily now a tent... the contact stands for air-bridges are being extended beyond the current Domestic Departures...


The HUGE new parkade...


Seems arrivals is getting glass outside the "pick-up" areas as well...


Looking inside the new Departures level...


A little closer...


Glass facades on the northern end...


Completed north ramp and new parkade...


From the International Terminal...

Airside extension for domestic airbridges...

Terminal 2010 from the domestic side...


Pictures of Terminal 2010...




Towards the new multi-storey parkade opposite international terminal...

Just a cool pic I like of the current parkade and the ramps... The new one will look similar.

Wow - this project is coming along nicely. The glass wall is sexy +1.

Do you have any terminal layout maps or anything, showing where the terminal is in relation to the runways etc.?

Are there still plans to connect the airport up to Capetown's rail system?

The airport will be connected to the BRT system by March 2010 with the rail link in place late 2011 or early 2012.

Unfortunately haven't seen any official map of the new terminal and parkade developments. You can check Airports Company South Africa's website (www.acsa.co.za) but I haven't seen a map of what CTIA will be like after opening in Dec2009. So, tried to compile a quick one for you of how I understand how the developments are going...

Considering that CPT is a major construction site right now, that's very impressive.

This Upgrade is well overdue!
Finally we will be having a world class airport, now we just need more direct international flights without going to JHB first
