Qatar Airways has increased its daily capacity to Cape Town with the introduction of a Boeing 777 adding 158 seats.

UK travellers can fly with the airline from Heathrow, Manchester, Edinburgh and Birmingham to Cape Town, home of Table Mountain, via Doha.

Qatar Airways has been serving Cape Town from its Doha hub since 2005, starting operations with four weekly flights via Johannesburg and steadily upgrading its services. A daily service began in October 2015.

Morena Bronzetti, country manager for UK & Ireland said: “We are anticipating increased travel between the UK and Cape Town during the busy winter travel season, as such; we are delighted to provide our passengers with even greater choice when making their travel plans to this popular destination.”
