United Airlines announces the intended launch of a new seasonal non-stop service between Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey, New York, to Cape Town International Airport.  The seasonal service is said to commence in December 2019.

The flight service will be operated by a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft featuring 48 seats business class, 88 seats in Economy Plus and 116 seats in Economy.

“The introduction of this new route not only provides a much-needed link between the USA and Cape Town from a tourism perspective, but a direct flight, with an estimated four hour saving in travel time, will also mean an increase in business and investment opportunities,” Deon Cloete, Airport Manager of Cape Town International Airport.
