Airports Company South Africa (ACSA): Free App to navigate airports

Airports Company South Africa (ACSA) has released its first free airport application for smartphones and tablets. The app assists passengers to navigate any of ACSA's nine airports in South Africa, including OR Tambo Interantional Airport in Johannesburg, Cape Town International Airport in Cape Town and King Shaka International Airport in Durban. The app, which is available for download on Android, Apple iOS and Blackberry devices (except for the Q and Z series), is called "Airports Company South Africa" and provides the user with tools to find shops and restaurants, airline, travel and traffic information, weather reports and customer care details.

  • Flights: Search for flights can be done via a flight number or an advanced search option as well as checking in online. Once the flight is activated, any changes related to the flight will be visible to the passenger on their mobile device.
  • Shop and Dine: A selection of restaurants and shops to choose from can be searched either by category, terminal or name. A currency calculator is also available.
  • At the Airport: A list of the airlines that operate at the respective airports, as well as their contact numbers are provided. There is also a list of frequently asked information and contact details of the Customer Care department as well as the airport. Users will have access to a map of the airport developed in conjunction with TomTom and Micello Indoor Maps. This allows the passenger to search for, and be routed to, a location at the airport. Parking options and other information such as a parking cost calculator are also available. Weather updates of conditions at the airport are sent through on an hourly basis.
  • To and From the Airport: Traffic updates mean travellers can plan their trip to the airport more effectively. Also, there are listings and contact details of the car rental companies, Gautrain, taxis, and shuttle services.
