Thomas Cook to launch a winter seasonal route from London Gatwick to Cape Town in December 2016

Cape Town in South Africa has long been a very popular destination for Britons seeking winter sun.  

However, direct flight options between London and Cape Town have in the past year become limited to British Airways following the withdrawal of Virgin Atlantic’s seasonal route and the previous suspension by South African Airways.

Thomas Cook has now entered the market with the launch of a three times weekly flight between London Gatwick and Cape Town.

The flight will operate for three months from 15 December 2016 to 20 March 2017. 

Flights will be operated using Airbus A330 aircraft in a two class economy and premium configuration.

The flight times have not yet been published. 

This route adds to a growing portfolio of long-haul leisure routes at London Gatwick with Norwegian’s expanding transatlantic network and WestJet and Air Canada Rouge due to launch flights to Canada from London Gatwick next year.
