BA to boost Cape Town frequencies


British Airways is increasing its services between London and Cape Town by two flights a week from January next year.

The additional services will operate from Gatwick using Boeing 777-200 aircraft in a three-cabin configuration with 32 seats in Club World, 52 in World Traveller Plus and 252 in World Traveller.

This will bring to five the number of flights BA operates from Gatwick to Cape Town and increases its total number of flights between London and the Mother City to 19 a week.

Over the peak South African summer, British Airways also doubles its schedule between Heathrow to Cape Town, offering two daily Boeing 747 services, with four cabins, including First.

British Airways is the only airline to offer year-round direct services between London and the Mother City.

The additional flights between Gatwick and Cape Town will operate from 10 January 2021 to 24 March 2021.
