Virgin Atlantic’s much-anticipated service to Cape Town will return on 5 November 2022. Richard Branson joined the Virgin Atlantic team in South Africa to celebrate the re-launch, and took a special open-top bus tour through the city.
The route will have more than 80,000 seats between Cape Town and London, so there are even more opportunities to grab some winter sun.
With demand for travel ever-increasing, sightseers can take full advantage of the beautiful destination more easily than ever. South Africa is known not only for its natural beauty, but also its rich culture and heritage, so there is something for everyone to enjoy.
Home to Robin Island, customers can visit the prison where Nelson Mandela was held, which is now a living museum. Some may wish to challenge their adventurous side by riding the cable cars to Table Mountain’s flat top for sweeping views of the city. Those looking for something more laid-back are at the gateway to the Cape Winelands, the country’s top region for wine tasting tours.
The new winter service will operate on a Boeing 787-9 aircraft, and will run until 24 March 2022 complementing the existing year-round daily service to Johannesburg.
