Due to the recently introduced night flight ban in Frankfurt, Germany's flag carrier, Lufthansa, moved its seasonal connection to South Africa from Frankfurt to Munich. From 28 October 2012, Lufthansa passengers will therefore for the first time be able to reach the South African coastal city of Cape Town nonstop from Munich.
Lufthansa will be operating five flights per week with an Airbus A340-300 between the two destinations. The 221-seat aircraft will be configured with eight seats in first class, 48 in business class and 165 economy-class seats.
Passengers who are already booked on a Frankfurt <> Cape Town flight will be rebooked at no charge and informed accordingly in the next few days. The departure times from Munich will change only slightly compared to those from Frankfurt.
Lufthansa will operate its flights to Cape Town on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturday and Sundays, departing Munich at 22:00, arriving in South Africa at 10:35.
The return service will depart Cape Town at 19:00, arriving in Munich at 05:35 the following day.
