Cape Town has long been one of the most popular destinations with passengers throughout our worldwide network, and with the new services, we are now able to provide our customers with quicker and more convenient connections to one of the most beautiful cities in the world. We also look forward to our passengers from Cape Town experiencing our five-star service as they fly with us non-stop to Doha and onwards to over 140 destinations.”
