The $200m (R1.5bn) domestic and international terminal being built in Cape Town, South Africa, for the 2010 World Cup will open way ahead of schedule on 7 November 2009.

The five-storey terminal is currently 90% complete.

It will house 120 check-in counters, 20 self-service check-in machines, eight air bridges and 11 bus gates.

It has been fitted with an automated baggage sorting system that will be tested before the launch.

A transport plaza is also being built to connect to the city’s integrated rapid transit (IRT) network on launch.

Two subways built on the ground floor will enable pedestrians in avoiding motorists on the airport’s new arrivals level.

Plans have been drawn for the land transport management system at the airport in anticipation of the 2010 World Cup, being held in South Africa.
