Cape Town has long been a popular leisure destination for UK holidaymakers, particularly in the winter months of the northern hemisphere.
BA currently serves the city ten times weekly during the UK summer season and twice daily during the UK winter season.
BA will now be adding a third daily flight for just nine days between 2 January and 11 January 2015 to meet high demand in the New Year.
These flights are:
Flight BA 45 Depart London Heathrow 16:30 – Arrive Cape Town 06:05 (first flight 2 January, last flight 10 January)
Flight BA 44 Depart Cape Town 09:15 – Arrive London Heathrow 19:00 (first flight 3 January, last flight 11 January)
It’s also worth noting that first class will be available on these extra flights. During the winter season, flights BA 43 and BA 42 will operate without first class.
