Come visit in December

There are only a total of 10 (for now). Weather conditions in Cape Town are not as extreme as other places in the world so it’s not as necessary to have these bridges. Expansion will continue at a later stage for more bridges and to be able to accommodate the A380

at least u got more than what we got in Dhaka lol :P .....there is only 7 aerobridges in the airport at Dhaka, well there are plans to build 3/4 more. I guess the reason is that annually about 4/5 million pax flowing at Dhaka and about 25-30 carriers opearte to DAC only so yeah, I guess CPT sees more traffic flow.

about visiting SA, ill let u knw thru PM or u can PM me
