There has been a notable rise in the number of domestic and international airlines expanding their routes to Cape Town and other parts of the Western Cape.
On Tuesday, the first Ethiopian Airlines flight on the new Cape Town - Addis Ababa route landed at Cape Town International Airport.
Tim Harris, the CEO of Wesgro, spoke to CapeTalk presenter Kieno Kammies about the strategy for developing air access to Cape Town, and the possibilities this brings in making Cape Town an economic hub.
There are now 23 cities with non-stop flights to Cape Town. Nine of these are international cities, which are:
- Addis Ababa (Ethiopia)
- Amsterdam (the Netherlands)
- Doha (Qatar)
- Dubai (United Arab Emirates)
- Gaborone (Botswana)
- London (United Kingdom)
- Luanda (Angola)
- Walvis Bay (Namibia)
