May 28, 2016: Lufthansa will resume operations to Cape Town, Southern Africa from Frankfurt this winter. From December 2, 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.
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 connection extends the Lufthansa Group’s hub-wide portfolio and optimally complements the formerly seasonal offer from Munich and Zurich with Edelweiss.
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.
