British Airways New Gatwick-Cape Town Flight

British Airways has announced that it will launch a new route between Gatwick and Cape Town on November 24 2016.

The new winter-only Gatwick flights will increase choice for customers who can already choose to fly to the South African city from Heathrow where the airline offers two flights a day.

Fares start from £795 in World Traveller, £1712 in World Traveller Plus and £3924, for those relaxing in fully-flat Club World seats. All fares include taxes and charges.

The three flights will depart on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays at 18.00, arriving in Cape Town at 07.50 the following morning.

From winter 2016 British Airways will add a fourth three class Boeing 777 aircraft to its Gatwick fleet, bringing the total number of Boeing 777s at the London airport to 12.

Cape Town is one of four long-haul destinations British Airways is launching from Gatwick this year, with flights to Costa Rica starting on April 27, daily flights to New York’s JFK beginning on May 1 and flights to Lima, Peru commencing on May 4.
