JOHANNESBURG – THE SLOW Lounge at Cape Town International Airport has reopened.

SLOW Lounge next to O.R. Tambo International Airport.
More than 53 500 visitors passed through its doors between January to June 2014, an average of close to 9 000 people per month.
“The uptake on the SLOW Lounge offer has been remarkable,” says Chris
Labuschagne, CEO of FNB Credit Card.

primary driver behind the expansion of the Cape Town lounge.”

meeting and relaxing spots such as café style tables, sofas, communal
tables and private rooms.
Research into the usage of the different services on offer show that
visitors are factoring a visit to the SLOW Lounge into their travelling
