Find the most suitable airline to book your international flights!

A large number of airlines propose international flights to Cape Town, direct or via Johannesburg.

Before we start, I would mention that South African Airways is a reputed international airline, member of Star Alliance, and proposes flights to all five continents.

Hence it should always be the first carrier you consult when flying to or from Cape Town. It is usually well priced although not always the cheapest.

I thought that it would be convenient to present you these airlines by continent of origin.

Depending on your continent or departure, or destination, you will in most instances find your flight from one of the carriers listed under this continent, although that is not always the case.

For example, Emirates offer at the moment great deals on international flights to Europe, via Dubai, although it is not a European company.
