The extra aircraft will mean the airline can also launch its three times a week service to Cape Town, supplementing its already twice daily service from London Heathrow. Starting 24th November, the airline is bringing World Traveller (Economy) World Traveller Plus (Premium economy) and Club World to the route, with fares starting at £795 in the economy cabin and £3924 in the business cabin.
