The Airports Company, ACSA, has massively down-scaled its planned upgrades for the Cape Town International Airport.
That’s due to the financial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
ACSA initially set aside more than R7 Billion for at least five infrastructure projects, related to increasing traffic and capacity.
But the budget has been reduced to just R1 Billion.
Officials from the airports company appeared before the province’s Standing Committee on Economic Opportunities and Tourism, on Wednesday.
CEO Nompumelelo Mpofu says they’ll hold talks to determine when these projects will resume….
“We will only develop them as capacity returns. We relook at them in terms of the impact of COVID-19 and repossession them. There’re plans to bring back some of them if they’re necessary”.
