Cape Town International Airport has been distinguished as the premier airport in Africa, according to a recent survey by Skytrax, the renowned consumer ratings firm. This honor underscores the airport's commitment to outstanding customer service and operational excellence.


Despite this regional triumph, Cape Town International has observed a descent in its global standing, now ranked 54th after being 23rd in 2020. This shift underscores the fluctuating nature of global air travel and the constant changes in aviation standards.


Other South African airports also garnered accolades in the Skytrax survey, with Durban's King Shaka International Airport and OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg securing second and third places respectively on the African continent. These accolades affirm the sustained high standards across South Africa's airports, reinforcing their status as major entry points to the continent.


Internationally, Addis Ababa Bole International Airport in Ethiopia achieved the seventh spot in the African rankings, marking Ethiopia's rise as a significant hub for international travel and commerce.


Further north, Nairobi's Jomo Kenyatta International Airport clinched the 10th position, underscoring Kenya's pivotal role in East African aviation and its ongoing contribution to connecting the region with the global air transport network.


The findings from the Skytrax survey provide insights into the latest trends influencing the African aviation sector. Airports across the continent are continually striving to improve passenger experiences and operational efficiencies in response to evolving industry conditions and increasing expectations from travelers.
