Lufthansa moves first long-haul flight in wake of FRA night ban
Published: July 7, 2012
Lufthansa (LH) will transfer its first long-haul flights to Munich (MUC) following the night-flight ban at Frankfurt (FRA). The LH seasonal 5X-weekly A340-300 service to Capetown will now be operated from MUC from Oct. 29.
LH has been forced to reduce or adjust late evening flights from FRA during its summer schedule after a German court in April upheld the night-flight ban at FRA between 11 p.m. and 5 a.m. local time ( ATW Daily News, April 5 ).
LH has had to cancel 120 flights since October when the ban took effect.
