Virgin Atlantic to restart flights to South Africa in December

Published: Sunday, November 8, 2020

Virgin Atlantic is set to restart flights from Heathrow to Cape Town, South Africa from December 10. Last week, it started flying to Johannesburg from London.

The Cape Town will initially operate a limited schedule, still to be announced.

As of now, the airline operates four flights a week to Johannesburg and plans to increase it to a daily frequency by the end of the year.

Both routes will be operated by a B787-900 Dreamliner.

Virgin Atlantic will operate temporarily from Terminal 2 at Heathrow, due to the airport’s terminal consolidation, and will return to Terminal 3 when demand at the airport grows, enabling Terminal 3 to reopen.
