Cape Town airport is a delight to use! Small enough to have the personal touch, yet large enough to have modern facilities to hand. I used this airport when visiting Durban and had a weekend in Cape Town. The staff, as most South Africans are extremely courteous and nothing is too much trouble for them. My flying companion has had trouble with her US passport in every other airport but not in Cape Town. The security was thorough but unintrusive, just what you need after travelling from the other side of the world. I would thoroughly recommend using this airport, and the rest of Cape Town was just as friendly. All in all, a delghtful, stress-free experience, keen to make a return visit, as soon as possible. The only drawback was the lack of seats at our departure gate but this was a minor problem, easily rectified as the departure boards were kept up-to-date.
