Posted 22 November 2016 · Add Comment

Qatar Airways has increased daily capacity to Cape Town with the introduction of a Boeing 777 to serve the popular family holiday destination. This means an additional 158 seats per day to the city for passengers looking to enjoy South Africa's holiday season.

UK travellers can fly with Qatar Airways from London Heathrow, Manchester, Edinburgh and Birmingham to Cape Town via the airline’s state-of-the-art home and hub in Doha. Upon arrival, visitors can soak up the spectacular views of Table Mountain, explore beautiful scenic beaches or take up the adventurous garden route with its natural beauty and charm, attracting outdoor-enthusiasts.

Qatar Airways has been serving Cape Town from its Doha hub since 2005, starting operations with four weekly flights via Johannesburg. Due to popular demand, the airline has been steadily upgrading its services, with a full non-stop daily service to the city launched in October 2015.

Qatar Airways country manager, UK & Ireland, Morena Bronzetti said: “Whether it is mountain biking, surfing, sea kayaking, visiting historical places or even shopping, Cape Town offers every discerning traveller a memorable holiday experience. We are anticipating increased travel between the UK and Cape Town during the busy winter travel season, as such; we are delighted to provide our passengers with even greater choice when making their travel plans to this popular destination.”
