With spacious and private suites, fully flat beds, on-demand entertainment, delicious dining, and on-ground lounge access, flying First Class is a luxurious way of travelling to Cape Town. As memorable an experience as the holiday itself, First Class allows you to step off the plane jetlag-free and refreshed.

Our Travel Experts' recommendations

Though both airlines offer the very best when it comes to First Class travel, we recommend making the trip with British Airways. On long-haul flights, quality entertainment is important to pass the time. With British Airways, you can settle into hours of new release films, documentaries, TV shows, music, audio books and games. On the 15-inch screens, there’s also a USB port and RCA jack for enjoying your laptop, iPod or digital camera.

Airport lounge access

Cape Town Airport is home to many convenient lounges. First Class passengers with British Airways can enjoy access to the elegant Galleries Club lounge. Split into three zones for working, relaxing or dining, passengers can take a shower in the luxurious bathrooms, enjoy complimentary Wi-Fi while they work, or indulge in an array of delicious meals. Inside the International Terminal, passengers travelling on any airline can also pay to visit the Bidvest Premier Lounge and enjoy a range of convenient facilities. Talk to your First and Business expert to arrange access.
