Want to valet park your car while travelling locally or abroad? Then make sure you know where to go. 

Cape Town International Airport has issued a statement that the relocation of the Valet Parking area will take place on 31 January 2020. The plan is to move it from the Ground Floor Parkade 2 to Level 1 in Parkade 1, in order to make way for new developments at the airport.

The valet operation has outgrown the allocated space.

The move makes provision for a larger area and should provide a better customer experience. Once the ground floor of Parkade 2 has been cleared, work will commence in the area to make way for a new Pick up and Go area.

If all goes according to plan, Pick up and Go will be relocated in March this year.  

Deidre Davids, Senior Manager Corporate Affairs at Cape Town International Airport said, “The valet operators have done their best to inform their clients about their new location. Signage will be in place to assist their customers, and staff will be on hand to provide assistance if required. These are the first pieces of the puzzle. With our pending construction programme there will be constant changes. While we do anticipate some disruption, the team will do their best to limit this.”

The airport has invested R8 million on developing a new and improved valet area that was designed around customer centricity and the delivery of exceptional service levels.

The area will officially open and be fully operational from 05h00 tomorrow, 31st January 2020.  

Valet users are requested to keep a look out for signage around the airport precinct and on social media for updates. This forms part of the airport’s broader expansion programme. The three main projects include a new International Terminal, a new Domestic Arrivals Terminal as well as a new runway.
