Travellers looking to sink their teeth into a juicy American burger will have ample opportunity to do so as Delta launches its much-talked-about triangular route from Atlanta to Johannesburg and Cape Town.
This seasonal triangular route, which will officially launch in December, will be coupled with its award-winning direct non-stop service and will see daily flights to and from Cape Town.
The US Airline’s expansion into the Mother City is part of its bid to capitalise on the explosion of American tourists heading to South Africa, reports Business Insider.
“As demand for travel increases, we’ll be offering our largest-ever schedule between South Africa and the US this summer,” said Jimmy Eichelgruen, Delta’s director of sales for Africa, Middle East and India.
Delta first requested Cape Town to be included in its triangular route back in 2020 and again in 2021. The US blamed the South African government for the delays, as per IOL.
The plans were finally approved earlier this year.
