Fly Fridays: Get on Board With The Most Affordable Helicopter Rides in Cape Town
Want that extra-special experience to round off the week? These are the city’s most affordable helicopter flights – plus, get an exclusive 10% off your booking right here
Affordable flights in state-of-the-art Airbus helicopters. Plus Cape Town Helicopters Special: 10% discount on flights for CapeTownMagazine.com readers when using booking code: FlyAirbus.
“Fabulous, an absolutely wonderful experience! This is such a great way to get an awesome view of Table Mountain,” says Jan D from Stellenbosch in his review of a trip with Cape Town Helicopters.
A flight with Cape Town’s number-one TripAdvisor-rated helicopter tours operator, whose service includes daily flights to 25 locations around Cape Town in state-of-the-art, quieter (and thus more eco-friendly) Airbus craft, is rated among the top three things to do when visitingCape Town.
Cape Town Helicopters employs superior technology, offering air-conditioned flights with soundproof headsets, voice-activated microphones and optional four-camera, in-flight video recordings of your flight in HD. All their pilots have also qualified as tour guides. And, their aircrafts offer a wider, 270-degree field of view, ideal for capturing the most Instagrammable pics of Cape Town – like on their Cape Point and Two Oceans helicopter tours.
But, of course, all of this is only good if you can afford it. The good news? Now you can.
AFFORDABLE FLIGHTS MEAN FRIDAY IS FLY-DAY
A glorious “flip” over the Mother City costs you only R1300/p on Cape Town Helicopters’ Hopper flights.
And to put that into perspective, think what it would cost to take a group of friends (say five to seven friends) out to a restaurant in the city. Or, if you’re a group getting together to purchase a friend or family member a once-in-a-lifetime experience, it would cost five people around R260 each to buy a Hopper flight for that someone special.
What’s more, you could forego the Airbus and switch to the slightly smaller Robinson aircraft and do a flight of the city for as little as R950/p. (Note: these prices are not necessarily on the Cape Town Helicopters website, but you can phone them, mention CapeTownMagazine.com and they’ll organise it for you.)
Other affordable options include the Atlantico flight for R1800/p, which takes you from the V&A Helipad all along the Atlantic Seaboard and back again. And then, for R1900/p you could choose to see one of the country’s most historically important landmarks from the air (note: the flight does not land on the island) on one of Cape Town Helicopters’ daily Robben Island tours.
