A flight to kapama

Kapama realizes that the discerning travellers require something even more exclusive, luxurious and relaxing to kick-start their safari when arriving at ORTIA or Cape Town International.

To accommodate this need, Kapama developed and built its own tarred runway for its privately-owned Pilatus PC1-2 aircraft. This Kapama aircraft had its first flight in December 2017. Pilatus is a Swiss aircraft manufacturer with an astounding reputation for quality and safety. The Pilatus PC-12 has an outstanding safety history and is known as one of the most reliable aircraft in the world. This Kapama owned and branded aircraft is now operating between ORTIA and Cape Town International for Kapama guests exclusively on request.

To add to this extremely luxurious travel option Kapama have partnered with Fireblade Aviation and will be using the exclusive Fireblade terminal services at ORTIA for guests making use of the Kapama luxury travel option to Kapama. The Fireblade facility includes among others a gym, day rooms, boardrooms etc. where guests to Kapama can freshen up before they board the Kapama aircraft or when they return from Kapama and need a comfortable area and setting before moving on to their next destination.
