South African Airports handled 30 million passengers in the last 10 months

According to the latest figures from the Airports Company of South Africa(ACSA), airports in South Africa handled an estimated 30 million passengers between April 2011 and January 2012 indicating a healthy aviation market in South Africa in spite of the tough economic times globally.

According to ACSA, the air traffic received a huge boost over the summer period at the Cape Town International Airport where international passenger travel increased by 12% in November last year and 17% in December and January this year, compared to the same periods a year earlier.

More than 5-million passengers passed through King Shaka International Airport last year and the increase in passengers was driven in part by the launch of flights by Velvet Sky Airlines.

New routes from King Shaka have been opened, including a flight to Lusaka, Zambia and a route to Dallas, Texas. Demand for flights to other African countries proved resilient last year with demand for premium and economy class tickets rising at near double-digit rates.
