A better offer to the South: just in time for the start of the autumn school holidays, Lufthansa is offering its passengers as of 16th October 2004 a non-stop flight from Frankfurt to Cape Town. Three times a week and from the end of October on even daily, an Airbus A340-300 with the flight number LH 576 will depart at 21.25 hrs. in Frankfurt and land the next day at 9.45 hrs. local time in Cape Town. The return flight (LH 577) will leave Cape Town at 17.45 hrs, arriving at Frankfurt’s Rhein/Main Airport at 4.30 hrs. the next morning. Up to now Lufthansa has served Cape Town with a stopover in Johannesburg; as a result of the new non-stop connection the travelling time for passengers will be reduced by two hours and ten minutes to 11 hours and twenty minutes.
Johannesburg will also be served non-stop from Frankfurt. A Boeing 747-400 with the flight number LH 572 will leave Frankfurt at 21.40 hrs., arrival in the South African metropolis is scheduled for 8.50 hrs. the next morning. The return flight LH 573 from Johannesburg to Frankfurt will be in the air from 19.15 hrs to 4.25 hrs. the next morning. As a result, the daily Munich-Johannesburg-Cape Town flight will be removed from the winter timetable.
Passengers can obtain further information and make their bookings at www.lufthansa.com or the pages of linked travel portals, at the Lufthansa Call Center, at travel agencies with a Lufthansa agency or at the sales counters at the airport.
