Qatar launches Cape Town flights
Qatar Airways will begin non-stop flights, five times a week, between Doha and Cape Town, from November 3.
This will replace the airline’s current three-times-a-week flights to Cape Town via Johannesburg.
The airline says Cape Town is one of its most popular African destinations. “Now, thanks to continuous growth of the airline’s fleet and increasing passenger demand to the South African city, the airline is offering non-stop services to Cape Town for the first time.”
The route will be operated by a Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft, featuring 22 business class seats and 232 economy class seats.
Flying on Mondays, Tuesday, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, the flights will depart Cape Town at 12h45, arriving in Doha at 23h30. The return flight will depart Doha at 01h25, arriving in Cape Town at 10h15.
