United Airlines Expands Service to Cape Town, South Africa

United Airlines has announced plans to expand service to one of the world’s most popular vacation destinations by offering three nonstop flights per week, year-round, between New York/Newark and Cape Town International Airport.

The new schedule starts on June 5 and means that more than 85 U.S. cities will be more conveniently connected to Cape Town. South Africa’s second-largest city often ranks among the most beautiful in the world.

United will fly a 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft that includes 48 lie-flat, United Polaris business class seats, 21 United Premium Plus seats and 39 seats in Economy Plus. All seats are equipped with seatback on-demand entertainment to help customers pass the time and relax during their travels.

United first launched flights to Cape Town in December 2019, and it quickly became one of the airline’s marquee international routes. It later launched flights between New York/Newark and Johannesburg in June 2021, new service between Washington D.C. and Accra, Ghana in May 2021 and between Washington D.C. and Lagos, Nigeria in November 2021.

This expanded service also strengthens United’s leading network from New York/Newark. United offers service to 74 international destinations from New York/Newark, more than any U.S. carrier. In 2022, the airline will introduce new service to additional international destinations in Europe including Palma de MallorcaSpain; Azores, PortugalBergen, Norway; Tenerife, Spain and Nice, France.
