Norse Atlantic Adds New Direct Flight to Cape Town

Author: Selene Brophy - 22 April 2024

UK travellers now have more direct routes to Cape Town to choose from, with the launch of the Norse Atlantic Airways flight between Cape Town International Airport (CPT) and London Gatwick Airport (LGW).

The service will operate seasonally with three weekly flights, starting on 28 October. The flight will arrive in Cape Town at 09:30 (SAST) on a Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday before departing for London Gatwick (LGW) at 11:45 (SAST). Norse Atlantic Airways will operate the service on a Boeing 787-9. 

UPDATED: New Flight Routes Improving Access to Top Destinations

The United Kingdom is Cape Town’s top international source market, followed by the United States and Germany. In 2023, two-way passenger traffic from the UK grew by 54% compared to 2022, with more than 360,000 passengers flying between the two destinations.

Cape Town is one of the world’s most sought-after destinations, drawing tourists with attractions such as Table Mountain, Robben Island, and the Cape Winelands.  The new direct flight route further extends the appeal of visiting Cape Town as part of a Southern African bucket list safari. Get in touch with a Discover Africa travel expert to find out more.
