International Flights From Cape Town

Cape Town International Airport’s passenger statistics continue a positive trajectory. In April, both domestic and international terminals recorded year-on-year monthly growth.

The domestic terminal recorded a 7% year-on-year growth in April when compared to the same period in 2022, with 574 000 passengers moving through the terminal. The year-to-date growth (Jan-Apr) is 3% below 2022 figures – this is an anomaly as Comair was still operating until the end of May 2022. We expect to see a positive growth trend for the domestic market after May 2023. 

The international terminal saw a 39% year-on-year growth, in April, when compared to the same period in 2022, with 218 000 passengers moving through the terminal for April.
