Second US carrier pushes back restart date for Cape Town flightsBy ATTA®
United Airlines was expected to relaunch direct flights between New York and Cape Town in December. The airline operates a seasonal service on the route, offering direct flights between Cape Town and New York from December to March.
The cancellation of United’s flights comes after Delta Airlines delayed the restart of its flights between Atlanta and South Africa in October, citing a slow-down in passenger demand as the cause for the delay. The global slump in demand for tourism and air travel has forced both airlines to cancel flights on the route.
Though the South African authorities now permit all international visitors to travel to South Africa — provided they comply with entry requirements and can produce a negative COVID-19 test result certificate on arrival — there still has not been sufficient demand to warrant United Airlines to restart this route.
