Fly Cape Town to Zurich

Guten Tag! Bonjour! Ciao! Just like there are many languages in Switzerland, there are also many ways of getting there! Only Edelweiss Air offers (seasonal) direct flights from Cape Town to Zurich, but there are plenty of 1-stop options, with Emirates (via Dubai) AND SAA/Swiss (via Johannesburg) often being the cheapest of the lot. Keep an eye on the clock though, as the 1-stop flights are sometimes very long.

The way to make sure that you get on a cheap flight from Cape Town to Zurich is to compare the prices of all airlines flying the route using the flight bookings tool on the left.
