Plans for the Cape Town Winelands Airport are Advancing 

South African entrepreneur and managing director of rsa.AERO, Nick Ferguson, announced that the private airport group has signed a 15-year agreement with the German airline Lufthansa Group. The Winelands airport plans include a R7-billion expansion for a Code F runway, extending 3 500 metres, to accommodate aircraft as large as an Airbus A380, which Cape Town International cannot handle. The expansion will also feature a plaza, hotel, conference centre and wine-tasting facilities. The airport is expected to be off-grid for water and electricity, utilising solar and biogas power generated from chicken manure.
