Delta adds Cape Town to long-haul route

Posted by Anita Froneman on 21 May 2020

US airline Delta recently announced they will retire all their Boeing 777s by the end of the year. That raised questions about Delta’s longest route, Atlanta to Johannesburg as the airline’s Airbus A350s may not have the capability to fly nonstop.

Now Delta has shared the good news that they will be adding a stop in Cape Town on this route in order to refuel and so will continue to serve Johannesburg, according to The Points Guy.

Delta president Glen Hauenstein made this announcement yesterday, 20 May. The launch date of this modified route is not certain yet due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
