EXTRA: It’s back! Cape Town for under £1150 on BA!

Cape town cheap business class flightsCape Town waterfront and Table mountain

Yes, you read that right. Looks like the old BA intern is back this week in force. Before we had Johannesburg for under £1000 but now we have Cape Town for not a lot more. Move fast as this won’t hang around long.

Fare Conditions

  • Tickets Must be issued by the 31/1/19
  • Travel until 12/12/19

Apart from that it looks wide open –

BA Holidays

Once again you can secure this today, with just a deposit. By adding a car you can turn it into a holiday booking on BA.com. This also earns you bonus Avios of 1 per £1 spent on top of the usual flight and car hire Avios. You can search for BA Holidays options here.

Tier Points

As Cape Town is a Long Haul Plus route you will earn 160TP each way not the usual 140 like Johannesburg. So the full trip would be 400TP.

For a larger TP earning you could consider starting Athens and routing via Johannesburg.


You can either see my guides to ITA and book with ITA –

ITA Matrix Part One

ITA Matrix Part Two

You can also book quickly and simply via our friends and partners at Propeller Travel here

If you just want to do a direct booking you can book using British Airways here.

Upgrading to First

Yes, we all want more! This is a full BA fare on BA codes, so ripe for upgrading, space permitting.

Avios can be used space permitting (Note – GGL members can use a space release (joker))

Gold Upgrade vouchers (GUFs) can also be used via BA.

  1. Ok if you want to travel for almost a day to get there, I’ve just got back from Jamaica via a 3 hour stop in Chicago O’hare that was bad enough, but it’s a good deal if your prepared.

  2. Thanks for the tip off yesterday Michele……whilst Vegas in Oct wouldnt go through until the price shot up, we got SFO F class for £1600 ret each from INV! Very happy as “F” on Alaskan is very reasonable and great timings for connecting back to LAS . Also BA are doing a 20% reduction on hotels just now – excellent job.
    Just the locator to INV to sort abd Fly(may)be has better timings than BA.
