Yes this is a much needed expansion! Cape Town is the most visited city in Southern Africa, it is second in Africa, it has also been added to the 2008/2009 Top cities list (being in the top 10 and top 15) The Current airport has been named Best Airport in Africa for the past few years now. The reason in which the airport does not have so many international flights is because its not South Africa's main airport, and ACSA chooses to Johannesburg's airport to be the main hub for international flights. If it was upto the passengers, most people would prefer to either fly to Durban or Cape Town. I think there will only be 12 Air passenger bridges, currently there is only 2. The Arrivals and Departures terminals will are connected, thats why the new terminal is called the Central Terminal Building. ACSA's website has not been updated in a long time, eg, CTIA last updated in 2007. Durban is getting a new airport, similar to CTIA.
ACSA is funding this, Im not sure what percentage is being funded by government.

Thanks for the reply so it seems CTIA isnt really a major international player in ZA. I think its strange here in Australia Sydney is the busiest and biggest airport which also having a redevelopment to be even bigger but here in Melbourne we are the second biggest and busiest with our own redevlopment to be even bigger but not as big as Sydney yet we have heaps of international flights to different parts of the world add Brisbane which just finished its redevlopmetn of its International terminal and Perth which is having a massive development with Adelaide, Cairns and Darwin all the airports seem to have their fair share of airlines and development.

Why doesnt the ZA govt or ACSA also focus on getting airlines to go to CTIA aswell? especially if there are these devlopments. Whats the point in just keeping JNB the prime focus. From what I hear JNB isnt very inviting and that CTIA is better option.

Its been debated at length. CT is currently trying to do this.
Visit the aviation thread in the South Africa section. There are experts over there who know more about this.
