Major South African airports are undergoing construction upgrades worth $2.59bn (R19.5bn) in preparation for the upcoming 2010 FIFA World Cup to be held in South Africa.

OR Tambo International Airport will receive a second multistorey car park with 5,200 bays equipped with bay-detection technology.

A new central terminal building is almost complete and the new atrium of the international arrivals area was unveiled in September 2008.

The enlarged departures area features 75 additional check-in desks commissioned in April 2009 and six baggage carousels and additional retail facilities.

Cape Town International Airport is constructing a new central terminal building and a new departure facility with a multilevel car park with 4,000 bays, which is expected to be open by December 2009.

The extension to the existing arrivals terminal with a pedestrian link to the central terminal building is expected to complete by March 2010.

La Mercy airport in Durban is 72% complete, and features a 3.7km runway and 6,500 parking bays.
