Star Alliance member Turkish Airlines is currently offering business class tickets from Oslo to Cape Town starting at €1,515 (~NOK 17,594). The fare includes two checked bags weighing 32 kilos, lounge access, business class catering and lie-flat seats between Istanbul and South Africa.
Our availability calendar highlights all possible flight dates at the lowest price for trips up to 28 days. It will forward you to the Travel-Dealz.com flight search with your selected flight dates. You can also check TK’s website, which sells these tickets for NOK 18,839 (~€1,622).
You would first fly to Istanbul onboard TK’s Airbus A320 or Boeing 737 family narrowbody aircraft. A vast majority of them have a 2-2 configuration of recliner seats in business class. Between Istanbul and Cape Town, you’d fly a Boeing 787 Dreamliner which have a 1-2-1 configuration.
Search & Book
You can use our calendar above that will show you availabilities. Once you select your dates, it will forward you to either TK’s website or to the Travel-Dealz Flight Search with your preselected flight dates. With all its disadvantages, it may be worth it to book through online travel agencies (OTAs), since they offer prices of up to NOK 847 (~€73) cheaper. You can also search more specifically on Google Flights (instructions) for example by setting filters. You can then use our Go2 browser extension to book your flights.
Why is booking with an airline better than with an online travel agency?
More often than not, online travel agencies offer lower fares than airlines do. We still recommend booking with the airlines directly. There are two main reasons for that:
Better Customer Service
In case any problems like delays, cancellations or missed connections arise, you can communicate directly with the airline. The airline has to take care of you because you have a contract with them.
If a travel agency issues your ticket, you may have to reach out to them first. You also depend on your OTA to forward information like flight changes instead of receiving them directly from the airline. In many cases, you may get a prime exhibition of responsibility shifting rather than problem-solving.
This especially applies to premium tickets. You don’t want to spend more than €1,000 to wind up with some budget OTA’s telephone hotline in case anything goes wrong.
Baggage and Other Fees
Economy fares not including hold luggage are industry standard by now. In most cases, travel agencies charge much higher baggage fees than the airlines themselves. If bags are not included in your fare, airlines are often the cheaper alternative.
This also applies to other things like food services, insurances or priority treatment. In almost all cases, you pay less for additional amenities when booking on the airlines’ website.

Information & Tips for Cape Town
Cape Town is the second largest – but touristically more relevant – city in South Africa and especially known for the Table Mountain and the beaches in the south. The city is well-connected to Europe and the rest of Africa by air travel.
Compared to Johannesburg, flights to Cape Town are pretty much always more expensive. A good price is €500 – €600 for a round trip ticket in economy class. Anything under €500 can be considered a good deal, occasionally you can find fares around €400, although without checked luggage for the most part.
The Best Time to Visit
The ideal time to visit Cape Town is during the summer from the end of January until the end of April; the hottest temperatures are from December to February, although it is very windy during this time.
From the Airport to the City
Due to high crime rates, it is not recommended taking a bus or other forms of public transport in the regions surrounding the airport. A taxi from the airport to the city centre costs about €18 to €25, an Uber is a good alternative and costs about half of that.
