A process to rename Cape Town International Airport is currently underway.
The initiative is part of the Transformation of Heritage Landscape government programme and in line with the South African Geographical Names Council Act of 1998.
Four possible names have already been put forward: Nelson Mandela, Albertina Sisulu, Winnie Madikizela-Mandela and Robert Sobukwe.
Airports Company of South Africa (Acsa)'s Deon Cloete says other suggestions are still being accepted.
“What we do as the custodian of the airport, we facilitate the process and allow for the right conversations to happen. Ultimately, we’ll compile a report and some of the conclusive and recommendations will flow from there. The process is underway.”
Cape Town International Airport is one of four airports selected to have their names changed.
