Lufthansa's regular SA flight schedule now fully operational

To coincide with the start of the summer season in South Africa, Lufthansa is once again fully operational within the local market with the resumption of its scheduled service between Frankfurt and Cape Town.

LH 576, the first commercial Lufthansa flight to Cape Town since the lifting of the international travel ban, was welcomed at Cape Town International Airport at 10am this morning with a ceremonial water salute, having departed Frankfurt the evening before on 7 October at 10.15am

Lufthansa will be operating the Cape Town to Frankfurt direct service using an Airbus A340-300. LH 577 is a twice-weekly flight operating on Mondays and Fridays with all flights departing in the evening and landing at their destination in the morning.

"Lufthansa is pleased to be resuming flights to Cape Town, marking a return to our regular scheduled service between South Africa and Germany, following last week’s flight between Frankfurt and Johannesburg that was the first international long haul flight to return to South Africa.
The Western Cape remains an attractive destination for European holidaymakers and as Lufthansa’s flight schedule to South African is now fully operational we remain committed to continuing to support the restart of international travel into South Africa as a major airline partner for the local tourism sector," says Dr. André Schulz, general manager Southern Africa & East Africa Lufthansa Group Airlines.
