Madrid and Oslo to Cape Town, South Africa $486-$560 Ethiopian

Ethiopian Airlines has round trip fare deals from Madrid $560 and Oslo $486-$511 to Cape Town, South Africa. These are interesting routes since Ethiopian Airlines flies Madrid to Rome to Addis Ababa ADD using the same flight number and the Oslo route flies to Stockholm, then Ethiopia using same flight number.

Ticket prices from Stockholm to Cape Town are $80 more and Rome to Cape Town is $100 more than flights originating in Oslo and Madrid.

Ethiopian Airlines is a Star Alliance member airline. This is a particularly good fare deal for someone like me seeking to earn Aegean Airlines elite qualifying Tier Miles.

Deep discount economy U code tickets on Ethiopian earn 100% flight miles and Tier Miles for Aegean Airlines elite qualification and 100% flight miles in Turkish Airlines.

Momondo.com can even reduce the fare by $25 or so.

These Ethiopian flights are the lowest priced elite miles I have found for Aegean Airlines Tier Miles for long-haul routes besides California-Scandinavia routes on SAS.

Ethiopian Airlines also flies LAX to Dublin.
