United Airlines to launch new non-stop route to South Africa’s Cape Town

Published on : Thursday, April 18, 2019

United Airlines is going to launch new nonstop airline to Cape Town. The airline company has applied to The U.S. Department of Transportation for authority to launch new service between Newark Liberty International Airport and Cape Town International Airport with plans to operate nonstop three-times weekly flights to Cape Town starting in December 2019.



United Airlines says that the  direct airline service between New York/Newark and Cape Town will reduce the current travel time from New York to Cape Town by over four hours and provide customers from over 80 U.S. cities a one-stop access to Cape Town.



If the application is approved, the service of United Airlines between New York/Newark and Cape Town will be operated with Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft, which will have 48 seats in United Polaris business class, 88 seats in United Economy Plus and 116 seats in United Economy.



Cape Town is a focal point in South Africa both in tourism and business point of view. It is the trade center and the oldest city in South Africa. The city offers several attractions, including Table Mountain, Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens and the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront.




United Airlines says that the travellers to South Africa often begin their African journey in Cape Town before touring the Cape Winelands. The tourists can witness the African penguins at Boulder Beach or trekking beyond Cape Town to navigate South Africa’s many national parks, game reserves and coastlines and beaches of the KwaZulu-Natal and Western Cape provinces.
