The US Airline, United Airlines, has launched its first-ever non-stop flight between Cape Town and New York.

United’s new route will enable new and expanded economic opportunities on both sides of the Atlantic.

United Regional Director Sales, Bob Schumacher, says the new flight will improve the current journey time between the two cities by more than four hours.

Travelling time is now 14 and a half hours. A Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft will operate three-times-weekly on this new route.
