It’ll soon be easier — or at least far more comfortable — to get to Cape Town, South Africa (CPT).

As Traveling For Miles notes, beginning 17 November, Qatar Airways will be flying an Airbus A350-1000 on the Doha (DOH)-Cape Town route, replacing the standard 1-2-1 reverse-herringbone product on the A350-900 with the carrier’s far-superior Qsuite, our top business-class pick.

Once Qsuite service kicks off on the DOH-CPT route, you’ll be able to fly Qatar’s top product all the way from the UK to the South African capital.

While award space appears to be wide open on the flight between Doha and Cape Town, you might have some trouble finding availability from the UK.

Alternatively, Qatar consistently offers excellent paid fares between Oslo (OSL) and Cape Town, though you’ll need to position to Norway.

16,934 NOK works out to just $£1,574 — a very reasonable fare for Qatar’s phenomenal Qsuite product to South Africa. Keep in mind that the OSL-DOH leg is operated by the older, non-Qsuite product.
