[PREM FARE GONE] BA - KRK-CPT - 4127 PLN / $1038 USD r/t - Business

Another day, another "sale" to South Africa! I'll try posting this one later in the day to see how fast it makes its way to SF! It's early morning where this ticket originates, so hopefully some of you get to book it!

British Airways - Krakow, Poland (KRK) to Cape Town, South Africa (CPT) in business - 4127 PLN or 1038 USD or 817 GBP roundtrip. If you include a connection on the return at JNB the ticket price is 4127 PLN. If you fly back to London directly from Cape Town on the return the ticket price is 4487 PLN. See screenshot below.

Depart Sunday to Thursday and return Monday to Thursday. Fly by April 30, 2024. Sunday night stay required. A stopover in London is 100 EUR. Your ticket can be issued by BA or IB.

One way price for roughly 2/3 of a return.

Similar pricing from Scandanavia.

Nice! You are coming up with some cracking fares! I can't use this one myself because I'm pretty solidly booked for the dates it's available. I can highly recommend CPT though for anyone who fancies a cheap trip. I was there for the first time last year and I loved it. The direct CPT-LHR flight is probably better because I think JNB is still the old club product. Keep up the good work!

EDIT: Looking more closely, has CPT gone to LGW now?

Thanks for the deal. I booked WAW-LHR-CPT directly with BA. A350 both ways.

edit: cancelled WAW and booked out of CPH instead

Thanks and Agreed! I'm on a roll with these "sale" fares! CPT is definitely worth a visit! I have been there twice in the last few years. It's a beautiful part of the world. I flew BA both times from LHR and it was before they started flying the new product to CPT/JNB, so I don't have a comment on that.

There are still flights from LHR to CPT.

BA2041 LGW-CPT operates on Sunday, Tuesday, Friday

BA43 and BA59 both operate daily from LHR to CPT

Not sure if LGW is usually cheaper than the departure from LHR.

I flew the new suites back from CPT to LHR last year and it is a big improvement.

Nice to see the other origin points too. I hope this endures later in the year.

In the name of "better ask for forgiveness than permission" - plus the 24h period for free cancellation - I got 2 tickets directly with BA. Thank you.
