Which airlines fly to Cape Town
Being that Cape Town is one of the most popular cities to visit in South Africa, for both business and leisure, all domestic airlines fly to it, and have very frequent flights, every day, all day.
Both the low cost airlines, Mango and kulula fly to Cape Town, as well as the full service airlines like British airways and South African airways.
Typical prices for flights to Cape Town
As a result of the popularity of the route, there is high competition for the airlines and as such prices are kept at a reasonable rate. If you were to fly to one of the less popular cities, such as George, the price would be higher, relatively speaking. The price of course depends on where you are flying from, the dates, as well as a myriad other variables, however you can typically expect to pay around R1500 return from Johannesburg, and around R2000 return from Durban.
How to get cheap flights to Cape Town
Being that Cape Town is such a popular destination, it is not easy to find cheap flights for it. However they do appear. To give yourself the best chance of finding cheap flights to Cape Town, you should try and fly there during off-peak days (such as Wednesday), off-peak times, and off-peak periods (so stay away from the public holidays).

about Cape Town
As Cape Town is such a popular leisure destination, prices do skyrocket during the summer peak months, especially over December, and always over a long weekend.
Cape Town, often referred to as the Mother City, is world famous for its beauty. The most well-known Cape Town feature is of course the impressive Table Mountain (which is definitely worth a visit), but there are many other amazing things to do while in the fair Cape. Some of the best beaches in the world are in Cape Town and the more visited ones being Camps Bay and Clifton. There is also the V&A Waterfront, Signal Hill and the various pubs and clubs in the City Bowl. Full Cape Town Guide
You will land at Cape Town International Airport which is only around 20 minutes outside of the CDB and signage is very easy to follow. It is also only around a 45 minute drive to some tourist ‘hotspots’ like campsbay, bantry bay, the Waterfront, seapoint, and the world famous wine areas like paarl and somerset wes.
Remember that although technically speaking cape town is on the same time zone as the rest of the country it may ‘seem’ that things work slower, just because the general demeanor is relaxed and laid back. In fact it is often called the mother city because it takes 9 months to get anything done.
