Accolades for Cape Town International Airport

Accolades for Cape Town International Airport

Cape Town International Airport has once again been awarded the Best Airport in Africa and the Best Airport in Africa for Staff Service Excellence at the SKYTRAX World Airport Awards held on 10 April 2013. The announcement comes weeks after the airport was awarded the Best Airport in Africa award by Airports Council International.

The airport scooped the same awards at the 2012 ceremony. In 2011, Cape Town International Airport won two Airport Council International (ACI) Airport Service Quality (ASQ) global awards for the Best Airport in Africa and Best Improved in Africa. The airport also won the SKYTRAX World Airport Awards 2011 for Best Airport in Africa for Staff Service Excellence. These accolades are a testament to the continued commitment and hard work from airport staff.


ISO 140001 accreditation

ACSA Cape Town International Airport received an International Standards Organisation (ISO) 14001:2004 from the South African Bureau of Standards (SABS) Approvals Board.  CTIA is the first ACSA operated airport to achieve ISO 14001 accreditation. 

The ISO 14001 is an internationally recognised standard which assists companies in minimising their impact to the environment, ensures compliance to relevant legislation and guarantees continual improvement.  If a company is found to be compliant to the ISO requirements it will be issued with ISO 14001 accreditation.  CTIA’s accreditation was issued in March 2011.  The audits were conducted by independent auditors at two separate intervals.  All aspects of the Airport Environmental Management System are covered during the audits.
