New Cape Town Airport terminal opens

first_imgWork on Cape Town International Airport’s R1.6-billion, five-storey central terminal building has been completed and both international and domestic passengers will use the new consolidated check-in area from this weekend onwards. Acsa is also urging airport users to play their part and to add an extra 30 minutes onto their travel time. “We know that the changes may disorientate airport users – this is why we have gone out of our way to assist airport users,” said Hendricks. “It’s been a rather busy morning for everyone – both passengers and airport staff as we all become accustomed to the new processes.” 9 November 2009 “It has taken much collaboration between Airports Company South Africa (Acsa), the airlines, the government agencies, retailers and the entire value chain – as an airport community, we are extremely proud of the new terminal.” “Over the past few months the airport team has been working very hard to ensure a smooth transition from the old terminal to the new one,” Cape Town International Airport communications manager Diedre Hendricks said in a statement last week. Increased retail presence To improve vehicular movement at the airport, the road network is also undergoing an upgrade, with a new drop off road situated right in front of the terminal building. The entire road network project will be completed in March 2010 at a cost of R120-million. The new terminal significantly enhances the airport’s capacity with 120 check-in counters, 20 self-service check-in machines and a consolidated security screening point, all housed in an area of 50 000 square metres.center_img Acsa is ensuring that airport workers, as well as 80 temporary staff, are on hand to assist passengers as they come to grips with the new central terminal building. The terminal also boasts a new R103-million baggage sortation system that operates 3 000 bags per hour and is fully automated, as well as additional passenger loading bridges – a first for domestic users. “The airport has changed and it is important that you give yourself sufficient time to move through all the processes,” said Hendricks.

Other projects to be completed in March 2010 include the consolidated car rental facility, a transport plaza, a multi-storey parkade and aircraft parking stands. Not only has the check-in facilities been enhanced, but the retail facility has almost doubled, moving from 44 retailers and restaurants to 74. The expansion will bring in brands such as Ocean Basket, Woolworths, Steers and a Spur of 1 000 square meters – seating up to 500 people, it will be the biggest in the Western Cape.last_img read more

first_imgLiverpool chief Moore: No need for Man City comparisonby Paul Vegas10 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveLiverpool chief executive Peter Moore insists there’s no reason to seek comparisons.Manchester City have been the domestic benchmark for their rivals, with four Premier League titles, four League Cups and two FA Cups since 2011.However, Moore insists Liverpool are following their own path.”We feel good about the club in its entirety and we don’t compare ourselves with any other football club,” Moore told Press Association. “What Liverpool had to do was bring in a world-class manager, which we have, bring in a world-class squad, which we have, play exciting football, bring in players that are going to draw crowds no matter where they go – we’ve done that – build financial security at the club, we’ve done that.”It all sets us up for success going forward.

Goalies fight for time in net

For the second straight year, the Ohio State men’s hockey team has a fierce competition at goalie. Junior Dustin Carlson and sophomore Cal Heeter are again battling for time between the pipes.“I got my chance last year to play, I played the first game at Denver and the next game in Michigan,” Heeter said. “Then Dusty [Carlson] really got on a roll and coaches just stuck with him.”Carlson went on to have one of the best seasons in OSU history. He recorded 21 wins, fourth in program history, and four shutouts, which is third in program history. Carlson’s 1,014 saves last season ranked second in the conference and fifth in program history.Consequently, Heeter finished the season with only three starts. However, with the new season, the competition has been renewed.Heeter said he was told at the end of last season “If you come in and work hard you’re going to have your chances to play and you’ll just have to prove yourself in games.”So far this season, Heeter has taken full advantage of his opportunities winning two of his three starts. His wins came against No. 3 Denver in a 4-0 victory and against Lake Superior State by a score of 4-3.While Heeter has thrived in the early season, Carlson has struggled. Carlson has failed to record a win in his three starts this season, but his record isn’t necessarily due to his own play, coach John Markell said.“One guy right now is the recipient of more goals than the other,” Markell said. The Buckeyes have scored nine goals in Heeter’s three starts while scoring just four goals in Carlson’s.“Both of them are going to have the opportunity to play and that’s part of being a team,” Markell said. So far, the teammates seem unaffected by the rotation.“As far as playing one game a weekend, I think in some ways its easier,” Heeter said. “But if they call on me to play two, that’s not going to bother me either.”The duo also seems to have embraced the situation, and worked with each other to improve. “It’s a healthy competition between us. We push each other to be the best,” Heeter said.Heeter and Carlson will continue to push each other in the Buckeyes’ next two games against No. 11 Notre Dame. The games are Friday at 7:35 p.m. and Saturday at 5:05 p.m. at Notre Dame. read more
