Read Time:59 Seconds

July 18. The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) has tentatively approved applications from United and Delta to begin new service to Cape Town (CPT), with both airlines providing three weekly flights.

On June 22, the SADoT reported that, if the airlines meet certain conditions, the two requested frequencies may be agreed to in the bilateral agreement between the two countries. The DOT is waiting for the South African entity to fulfill the commitment to increase frequencies in the U.S.-South Africa Bilateral Agreement, currently U.S. operators can fly 21 weekly flights between countries.

SADoT is expected to grant both carriers’ applications by August 15, 2022. Separately, the DOT has received assurance from the South African government that the two extra frequencies in the Agreement will be allocated.
