Okie, My sis used to live in Farmington NM. O**

Family & friends all wonder why I visit SA so much. They all see the hijackings etc. on the news and would not dream of visiting because of what they see reported on newsreels.

Not sure I would be visiting so much if I did not have such good friends living there though. :-?

JOHANNESBURG – Police are investigating a case of armed robbery and assault after a group of Iraqi diplomats were attacked last night in northern Johannesburg.

It is understood the victims were driving from OR Tambo International Airport to their hotel when they were ambushed at the Corlett Drive off-ramp.

One of them was injured in the attack and the thieves made off with a number of valuables including cash and jewellery.

It’s also understood that the victims contacted the Iraqi ambassador at the crime scene.

The police’s Vish Naidoo says: “I can confirm that there were seven visitors, they were in the country since Tuesday this week.

“They were returning from the Eastern Cape back to Gauteng when they were accosted at Corlette Drive.”

Seems that this kind of hijacking is getting worse by the day. What is the police doing? It could easily be the same gang 0=

Cape Town airport the best in Africa

Cape Town - The World Travel Awards Africa have recognised Cape Town International Airport (CTIA) as the best airport in Africa.
The airport won the award at a gala ceremony in Rwanda earlier this week.

Economic Opportunities MEC Alan Winde congratulated CTIA on the award, which is voted for by the tourism industry and consumers.

“I would like to commend Deon Cloete and his team at CTIA for flying South Africa’s flag high at these awards, once again being named as the continent’s best airport.”

Winde said they had added 10 new direct routes and secured 11 expansions since the launch of the joint Project Khulisa growth strategy.

“We’ve seen an increase of 27% in international air arrivals in the past year. Improving air access has played a major role in driving this increase,” Winde said.

In a statement, CTIA general manager Cloete said: “Cape Town International Airport is delighted to have received this accolade as it recognises the commitment to excellence shown by the whole of Airports Company South Africa and this particular airport in the last 12 months.

“All indications are that we can expect a bumper peak season in Cape Town. The team is geared to do their bit to welcome all our visitors.”

Cloete said October marked the start of the peak season when seasonal carriers launched their summer schedules. CTIA has already welcomed Edelweiss, which connects Cape Town to Zurich; Condor, which connects the city to Frankfurt; and soon Lufthansa will start operating its Munich to Cape Town run.

The airport also won best airport in Africa and the staff were named Best Airport Staff in Africa at the SkyTrax World Airport Awards, hosted in Germany last year.

CTIA is the second-busiest airport in South Africa.
