Airports Company South Africa (ACSA), Cape Town International Airport (CTIA) ‘s Consolidated Car Rental Facility opens on Saturday, 27 March 2010 with all Domestic and International car rental offices operating from the new facility.
All the car rentals will move to the one space and passengers will pick up and drop off the hired vehicles in the facility. “This is good news for the airport users as they will not need to walk from the current Domestic car returns to the new terminal. The distance between the new facility and the Central Terminal Building is shorter.” said Deborah Francis, Senior Communications Officer ACSA, CTIA.
Passengers will easily access this facility through the Southern subway located near Parkade 2 which is set to open on Thursday, 25 March 2010. To access the car rental facility from the approach road passengers are encouraged to look out for signage and stay at the far right lane which leads to the Shade Parking 1 entrance and exit points and then the car rental facility’s entry point along the Central Boulevard between the two parkades. “The new facility will contribute to the streamlining of passenger movement from the Central Terminal Building to the transport hub which will soon include the transport plaza with public transport offering.”, says Francis The Northern subway currently used by passengers to access Shade Parking 1 located near Parkade 1 will be closing on 26 March 2010 to be reconfigured. Passengers wanting to access Shade Parking 1 will need to access it from the Southern subway and the pedestrian walk way located by the new car rental facility.
This will apply to the passengers going to Shade parking 2 located near Parkade 1. Signage to guide passengers will be visible on all pedestrian routes from the Domestic Arrivals Terminal and the Central Terminal Building. “Temporary staff will be visible in all key points to assist passengers during this transition. Airport users should look out for staff with “How can I help you?” shirts who will assist them in finding their way around to the new Car rental Facility.”
CTIA would like to take this opportunity to thank all our airport users for their continued support as we make improvements to their airport. Construction work will be coming to an end soon
