New York to Cape Town - Non Stop From December 15 2019 on United Airlines

Recommended Posts

United Airlines plan on flying non stop from Newark Liberty International Airport (New York) to Cape  Town from December 15, 2019. There will be three flights a week on a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft.

Flying time 14 hours on the way to Cape Town and the return flight will take 16 hours due to headwinds.

This is still to be approved by the US Department of  Transportation.

But great news, and a little competition for SAA

So nice to have another direct to CPT option from overseas.  We'll probably replace our current SFO-CPT route to go via NY than LHR when this takes effect, assuming prices are reasonable vs the BA route.

Just a tip to passengers currently flying out of Johannesburg to USA - The only way to take  water or sodas with you on the flight, is to purchase water at the Duty Free liquor store. The water and whatever else you buy  is sealed in a plastic bag and delivered to your gate.  Don't purchase any last minute water at the shops, as you will have to  either drink it or throw it away at the Security Check at the gate.
