Virgin Atlantic: Daily flights from London to Cape Town

Summer is returning to Cape Town, and so are direct flights from London with Virgin Atlantic. Flights will depart London thrice weekly until October 31, 2012, and then daily from November 1, 2012 until April 2013.

"By introducing the direct flight for summer, we believe this will drive additional tourism to both London and Cape Town," said Simon Newton-Smith, Virgin Atlantic country manager for South Africa. "The direct route also cuts down costs, whichever way you're flying." 

The average flight time from London Heathrow to the Mother City is about 12 hours.
