Delta Airlines adds Cape Town to its routes
19 June 2020
STATEMENT BY THE CITY’S MAYORAL COMMITTEE MEMBER FOR ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITIES AND ASSET MANAGEMENT, ALDERMAN JAMES VOS.
Before the COVID-19 crisis hit, Cape Town had secured numerous new flight routes connecting us to more and more cities across the globe, bringing more tourists to our beautiful city and allowing the export of our proudly local goods.
While air travel has essentially been halted, I am pleased to see that airlines are getting back in the sky’s. Even more exciting is the fact that Delta Airlines will add Cape Town to its Atlanta-Johannesburg route.
Slowly but surely the aviation sector is getting back on its feet and up in the air. My team and I are working hard, using all avenues available, to push for the safe reopening of the tourism and related sectors, to protect lives and livelihoods.
I look forward to welcoming back our local and international tourists and sharing all that our beautiful city has to offer.
