King Shaka international airport departures
King Shaka International Airport (KSIA) is located in the east of South Africa on the coast near the city of Durban. The airport started the first Durban airport departures in 2010. It replaced the other airport near Durban just before the world cup soccer started. This allowed many international flights to be handled during the championship. It is an international airport without many international King Shaka departures. There are only a few destinations outside South Africa.
Most flights go to the country’s capital. The airport has the facilities to land and connect the large Boeing 747 and Airbus A380 to the terminal. There is both a passenger terminal and a cargo terminal. Safair and CemAir operate most flights to mainly domestic cities. About 5-6 million passengers use the airport every year.
By car or taxi it takes 30 minutes to reach the center of the city. You can get dropped off by car right in front of the terminal. The taxi and bus stand is also located just in front of it.
