[PREM FARE GONE] KQ/TG/OZ - ICN-CPT - 1,043,300 WON / $792 r/t - Business

Kenya Airways is having a nice "sale" on flights from Seoul (ICN) to Cape Town (CPT). You can fly roundtrip for 1043300 WON or $792 in business class. The segment from Seoul to Bangkok (BKK) is operated by Asiana or Thai and the segments from Bangkok to Nairobi (NBO) and Nairobi to Cape Town are operated by Kenya Airways.

Keep in mind that some days the flight from NBO to CPT is operated by a regional jet that stops in Livingstone, Zambia (LVI) or Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe (VFA).

You can get a stopover at NBO, :LVI, or VFA for $150. Child Ticket is $594.

Wait before making any non-refundable plans should the airline decide this deal is too good! (the ticket is less than a roundtrip in economy) Get booking before SF posts this!

Thank you! It looks like the first day the fare is available is January 23 at 1.3 million WON / $845 r/t and the first day it's available at $792 r/t is January 29. The fare continues through end of schedule. In December KQ operates flights on Monday / Wednesday / Friday.

jumped on one for end of year, could not get after Jan 1st to work, but that does not matter too much - did manage to get through with E-tix. Let's see if it sticks and if it does hopefully with flight changes I can move dates to after Jan 1 or beyond.
Thanks to cruser1 for sharing!

Cheers!

Wow, another great deal involving KQ, but one has to wonder whether these deals are being done deliberately by KQ to boost their passenger numbers, or something related to their recent visa-free for tourists (but then if that's the case, why not end the deal in Kenya to bring tourists in?).

Anyways, great find and good luck to those who have booked.
