Lufthansa moves its Cape Town service to Munich due to night flying restrictions in Frankfurt
Lufthansa began operating the route from Munich (MUC) to Cape Town (CPT) on 28 October. The German airline previously served the South African city from Frankfurt, but in March 2012 decided to drop the service due to night flying restrictions being implemented at the airport. While another German carrier, Condor, will begin serving Cape Town from Frankfurt on 3 November, Lufthansa decided to move its service to Munich and now offers five weekly flights from the Bavarian capital. Flights will be operated using A340-300s.
