Lufthansa, Germany’s premier airline, is making a significant expansion move by introducing a new nonstop service connecting Munich Airport (MUC) to OR Tambo International Airport (JNB) in Johannesburg, South Africa, beginning on June 3, 2024. This development marks a remarkable return for Lufthansa to the Munich-Johannesburg route, as their last scheduled service between these two destinations occurred nearly two decades ago in 2005.
Travelers can anticipate a convenient three-times-weekly schedule, with flights operated on modern Airbus A350-900 aircraft, renowned for their comfort and efficiency. The flight timings provide flexibility for passengers, with departures from Munich at 19:15 local time, arriving in Johannesburg at 05:40 the following day. The return leg departs Johannesburg at 09:00, arriving in Munich at 19:30 local time.
This new route reflects Lufthansa’s commitment to expanding its global network and enhancing connectivity between major cities. It not only offers a convenient travel option for passengers between Munich and Johannesburg but also signifies Lufthansa’s confidence in the recovery of international travel and the importance of the South African market in its strategic plans.
Travelers can look forward to experiencing the renowned Lufthansa service, combined with the ease of nonstop travel, as they embark on journeys between Munich and Johannesburg, connecting two vibrant and culturally rich cities.
