Lufthansa flies from Frankfurt non-stop to Cape Town (South Africa) again in winter

Published on : Friday, May 27, 2016

lufthansaGood news for all South Africa fans: This winter Lufthansa will resume operations of the Frankfurt – Cape Town route in its flight schedule. From 2 December 2016, a Lufthansa aircraft will take off from Frankfurt and fly nonstop to the port city at the foot of Table Mountain every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. The connection extends the Lufthansa Group’s hub-wide portfolio and optimally complements the formerly seasonal offer from Munich and Zurich with Edelweiss. After Johannesburg, Cape Town is one of the most important markets for Lufthansa in the southern part of Africa. With its Star Alliance partner South African Airways, the airline offers attractive combination options to other destinations in that region.


Cape Town will be served by an Airbus A340-300, which boasts over 279 seats in Business Class, Premium Economy and Economy Class. LH576 leaves Lufthansa’s Frankfurt hub at 22:10 and reaches Cape Town the following morning at 11:00. The return journey starts in Cape Town in the early evening at 18:30 and ends the following morning after about 12 hours at 05:30 at Frankfurt Airport. The departure and arrival times enable ideal connections to the entire Lufthansa route network.
