Source: ENCA, 24/09/2020

CAPE TOWN - Cape Town International Airport has been given the green light to reopen for international travel on 1 October.
Transport Minister Fikile Mbalula made the announcement during his oversight visit there on Thursday.

Mbalula did not, however, shed any light on travel regulations, saying the process is taking longer than expected.

An announcement is slated for next week.

The aviation industry is losing millions daily due to a lack of international flights and Airports Company South Africa says it`s ready to welcome international visitors.

Before the lockdown, Cape Town International used to welcome around 35,000 to 45,000 passengers daily but it is currently operating at around 25-percent capacity.
