SAT Celebrated Only Nonstop Service from US to Cape Town with UA

South African Tourism (SAT) in partnership with United Airlines (UA) celebrated the new direct service between New York/Newark Liberty International Airport and Cape Town International Airport.

United Airlines is the only carrier to serve the route from US and will operate nonstop three-times weekly flights to Cape Town which commenced on December 15, 2019.

The inaugural gate event was held at Newark Liberty International Airport with a showstopping celebration including traditional South African dancers from Bongi Duma Productions, passed hors d’oeuvres, wine, and music.

The nonstop service reduces current travel time from New York/New Jersey to Cape Town by more than four hours and provides customers from more than 80 US cities with easy one-stop access to Cape Town.
