British Airways is to launch a new route from Cape Town to London's second airport‚ Gatwick‚ from next summer.

The flights will operate three times a week from the end of November and will complement BA’s twice-daily Cape Town-Heathrow service.

Gatwick to Cape Town flights will operate on Boeing 777s on Mondays‚ Thursdays and Saturdays‚ with return flights on Tuesdays‚ Fridays and Sundays.
