Emirates has announced that it will be expanding its operations in and out of South Africa, boosting its schedule to 28 weekly flights by October.
In a move to support the ramp up of operations after boosting its passenger services to South Africa, Emirates has signed an interline agreement with Cemair.
The planned opening of the property will mark the introduction of the select service and extended stay brand, Hyatt House, to the continent.
Situated at the foot of the iconic Table Mountain, the 137-room Hyatt Regency Cape Town represents the company’s growing brand presence across Africa.
The new look, which features a distinctively colourful African Sunbird set against a sunrise and dawn sky, follows several recent developments, including the formal re-naming of the company.
Cyril Ramaphosa, president of South Africa, has announced the destination will open its international borders to all countries, effective immediately.
The duo plan to offer single-ticket travel through Emirates’ gateways in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban to domestic points such as Port Elizabeth, East London and George.
The new addition further strengthens the Radisson presence in one of its key African markets and brings the South African portfolio to 16 hotels in operation and under development.
Authorities say they have recognised there are a number of regular visitors, mainly from European countries, who usually visit the country for long periods of time during the summer season.
The deal will offer Emirates’ passengers connectivity to more than 25 domestic destinations in South Africa and more than 20 regional destinations in southern Africa.
South Africa is preparing to reopen its borders to travellers for the first time since March. In an address to the nation earlier, president Cyril Ramaphosa confirmed the process would begin in October.
