Lufthansa to Increase Seasonal Capacity to Cape Town

21 Jul 2014 - Lufthansa will be increasing their capacity to Cape Town over the summer months. From the end of October Lufthansa will be using a bigger aircraft to cart people from the winter in Europe to the summer sun in Cape Town. The aircraft they will be using is an Airbus A340 600, it seats up to 375 passengers and the first A360 600 was delivered to Lufthansa in 1993. This switch in aircraft will add 30% more capacity to the route during the peak season. The increase in capacity comes after the demand for direct flights from Europe to Cape Town has increased. Great news for Cape Town tourism and South African tourism as a whole!
