Following the removal of South Africa from the UK's COVID-19 Red List, Virgin Atlantic is expanding its portfolio of flights to its destinations in South Africa.
From 8 November, 2021, flights from London Heathrow to Johannesburg will increase from three times a week to a daily service.
The airline is also bringing forward the relaunch of its Heathrow-Cape Town service. From 17 December, Virgin Atlantic will fly three times weekly to the destination famed for its breath-taking scenery and its world-famous wine region.
Flights to both Johannesburg and Cape Town will be operated using the airline’s state-of-the-art Boeing 787-9, with 31 Upper Class, 35 Premium, and 192 Economy Delight, Classic, and Light seats.
Customers travelling in the Upper Class cabin, as well as Gold Card members, will also be able to take advantage of Virgin Atlantic’s award-winning Clubhouse at O.R Tambo international airport, which offers a relaxing space with tasty food and tempting cocktails.
Flights to Johannesburg are available to book now from £478 per person return, while flights to Cape Town will go on sale from 16 October, 2021 from £578 per person return.
