Mbalula inspected various parts of the airport including security checkpoints and the immigration area.

Staff showed him a thermal imaging scanner that is placed at entrances to check passengers’ temperatures.

Mbalula said it was important that proper measures were put in place as the airport prepared to deal with more people.

“The Airports Company South Africa has taken it upon itself to ensure that all regulations are complied with by all travellers,” he said.
