The capacity on air routes into Cape Town will increase in time for this year’s summer season. Three airlines have recently announced that they will add to their services that operate through the city’s airport.
Lufthansa will increase the frequency of its service from Munich to Cape Town from five times a week to a daily flight. This non-stop service will be added in time for the South African summer months. The move comes after Qatar Airways announced their intention to operate more flights into Cape Town starting October 1, 2015.
More options will soon become available to those travelling between Switzerland and the South African city. Edelweiss plans to launch a non-stop flight from Zurich to Cape Town that will run twice a week from October 26, 2015, to March 25, 2016.
Wide range of tourist sites
Cape Town has an abundance of attractions for tourists staying in the many apartment rentals throughout the city. This includes taking a cable car to the top of Table Mountain, a visit to Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned, or a trip to watch the African penguin colony on Boulder’s Beach.
There are also plenty of opportunities to sample some of the local gastronomic delicacies, including many unusual and exotic flavors from across the continent. In the Cape Winelands, you’ll find most of the country’s vineyards, many of which provide sampling facilities.
Whether you want to relax and enjoy the beaches or take a cultural and historical tour, South Africa has something to offer you.
