Parking Information

Though the public car parks are owned by Airports Company South Africa, the management is contracted out to a specialist car park operator. Katanga Parking Services is the company contracted by Airports Company South Africa to manage the public car parks at Cape Town International Airport.  This also includes administering the valet services.

Two parkades are situated on either side of the Transport Plaza as follows: Parkade P1 lies to the North of the terminal building and consists of five storeys.  It contains 4050 parking bays with 6 elevators and 8 escalators.  There are 14 dedicated parking bays per floor available for persons with disabilities.

​A 20 minute free grace period is permitted for airport users to collect passengers.

Shade Parking P3 and P4 are located on either side of the centralised car rental facility and can be accessed via the pedestrian subways.  There are a total of 1600 parking bays in the shade parking including the Long Stay parking P5.

​Long stay parking is aimed at users parking for 5 days or more- the parking offering is limited to 189 bays and is operated strictly on a first come first served basis.

Long Stay Parking Special Needs Passengers

Cape Town International Airport introduced a Long Stay Parking option for Special Needs Passengers (SNP) on the ground floor of Parkade P1.  This is to ensure that a long stay parking option is also available to our SNP and that it is closer to the terminal for ease of access for the users.

Long Stay parking is the most economic product for passengers leaving their vehicles for more than five days. In consultation with QuadPara Association of South Africa (QASA), we have introduced Long Stay parking for special needs passengers.

Should you wish to access this service, kindly contact Katanga Parking Management on 021 936 3612/3 or Airports Company South Africa's Landside Hotline 021 - 935 3737. A prepaid access card will be issued and users just have to upload money on the card. Parking rates will be calculated as the same rates of the general Long Stay Parking in P5.

All parking facilities are equipped with state of the art CCTV cameras and both Parkades have a system that displays the number of parking bays available. 

Payment for parking is done only at the parking payment units placed conveniently on the ground floor of the parkade buildings and at the landings at the shaded parking areas.  The parking pay-stations at Cape Town International Airport accommodate cash payments, payments made by major credit cards and now accepts all debit cards as well with the new Chip 'n Pin facility. Parking attendants are on hand to assist with any problems. 

Through our service provider Katanga Parking Services and for the passenger's convenience, a battery 'jump start' service and 'flat tyre' assistance is provided. To make use of this service, dial 021 936 3612/3 and one of the courteous managers will direct your call to the Katanga Patrol Vehicle that will promptly assist and have you on your way again.
