South Africa’s Cape Town is expecting 184 international flights per week between November and the end of December 2022.

Western Cape Province minister of finance and economic opportunities Mireille Wenger said the flights are also expected to increase to 191 per week between January and March 2023.

“This amounts to roughly 1.56 million two-way seats, with the potential to generate tourism spend of an estimated R7.9 billion,” she said.

“This is incredible news for the Western Cape, and this is incredible news for South Africa as well. I see the impressive increase of flights to Cape Town as a cause for confidence and hope because, when we connect, we create opportunities for progress and prosperity, that gives us all hope of moving from recovery to growth.”

Meanwhile, Wenger said she had been discussing with the management of the Cape Town International Airport, and they have indicated that the current fuel shortages experienced at the airport are short-term and not systemic.

The airport management said extra fuel storage capacity is being brought on stream ahead of the tourism peak season.
