Lufthansa Flights to Cape Town Grounded by Curfew

Lufthansa has announced the cancellation of its winter service to Cape Town thanks to the ban on night flights at the Frankfurt International Airport.  The ban on night flights was initiated eight months ago and it does not allow flights after 11:00 pm.  There isn’t even any room for flights that must operate for medical reasons or when weather delays flights until after the curfew.  This has caused problems for passengers and for Lufthansa, which is battling competition from budget airlines as well as increased fuel costs.


Lufthansa manager Kay Kratky said the new curfew has caused Kufthansa to drop their winter Cape Town flights simply because they don’t want their passengers to end up stranded.  The flights to Cape Town have been moved to Munich, another airport that is having trouble since a proposed third runway has been voted down by residents in the area.  Kratky, who is a former pilot, said that Munich will bottleneck in the next three to five years.
