The Lufthansa Group has adjusted its South African timetable following the latest announcement from the German government barring entry from South Africa.
The ban on travel from South Africa, eSwatini and Lesotho is in effect until February 17, but may be extended, depending on the development of the pandemic.
Lufthansa has therefore suspended direct flights between Frankfurt and Cape Town until further notice. The flights from Frankfurt and Zurich to Johannesburg will remain at three flights a week each.
“In the current global situation, entry regulations for various destinations, including our hubs in Austria, Belgium, Germany and Switzerland, as well as the mandatory mask mandate, may change at very short notice,” said Lufthansa GM Southern Africa and East Asia, Dr André Schulz.
