International Flights to and From Cape Town and Johannesburg South Africa – All You Need To Know

Delegates to Cape Town mostly arrive and depart by air. Once on the ground, getting around is relatively simple and convenient, with MyCiti bus services, taxis, hotel shuttles and hire-cars being the preferred modes of transport for international travellers. Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town have modern airports with facilities to match. Apart from shops and restaurants, international arrival halls have banks and foreign exchange outlets. Lounges are available for business-class travellers. All of the airports offer wireless Internet (WIFI) access throughout the building or designated ‘hot spots’ where coverage exists.

There are WIFI facilities at both the International and Domestic Terminals at Cape Town International Airport.

The Cape Town International Convention Centre and other conference venues and hotels in the Cape Town central business district are a 20-minute drive from Cape Town International Airport. While a number of international and national carriers service Cape Town International Airport direct with the bulk of international carriers flying into Johannesburg. Cape Town is a two-hour domestic flight from Johannesburg and on average there are flights every half hour between the two cities with a variety of domestic carriers.

Departure Check-In
Departing passengers should allow at least two and a half hours check-in time for all international flights. An hour and a half is normally adequate for domestic check-in and this will allow for sufficient time for parking and check processes.
