Investment into a Cape Winelands airport holds huge benefits for the local economy.

The owners of the airport want to develop a Lanseria-type facility in the Durbanville area of Cape Town.

Wesgro CEO Tim Harris was excited by the prospect of a developed Cape Winelands airport.

He said that the agency had been in talks with the airport for months.

“We’re working to make this happen because I think any major city reaches a point where they need a second airport. Cape Wineland’s airport is very strategically situated and it has a lot of elements you’d look for in an airport.”

Harris said that having a second airport in Cape Town would boost the local economy and provide sustainable jobs.
