"We have done a lot with very little. I am proud to say that we are on our way," said CEO of ACSA Mohla Hlaha.

She was speaking at the Johannesburg press club in Emmarentia.

"When it was announced that we would be hosting the World Cup in 2010, Acsa was already in the middle of it ... We then planned so that we could accommodate the peak of traffic arriving in 2010 during the weeks of the World Cup".

Hlahla said that an estimated 350,000 more passengers would be arriving in South Africa during the period of the 2010 Cup.

"We used the best of skills for construction for the three airports, OR Tambo International, Cape Town and Durban International.

"Concerning construction, we believe that we are on track with all the infrastructure being ready by 2009."

She said that R21.9 billion was being put "to good use" at the three airports.
