King Shaka International Airport is a major airport located about 22 miles north of Durban City Center. Successfully replacing Durban Airport, the newly built King Shaka International Airport commenced operations at the onset of the 2010 FIFA World Cup. Although growth in the number of international flight operations has been the primary objective of the new airport, domestic services account for substantial chunk of scheduled flights from KSIA. You would come across several flights heading towards the Golden Triangle between King Shaka Airport, OR Tambo International Airport, and Cape Town International Airport.
Besides improved flight connectivity, KSIA’s integration with Dube Tradeport has contributed to an incremental growth in passenger arrivals. A leading commercial hub, Dube Tradeport is home to an exclusive trade zone directly linked to KSIA’s cargo terminal, and as well as other facilities such as, offices, Information Technology platform, Agricultural Export Zone, and tourist accommodation.
Spread across 1,100,000 sq ft, passenger terminal at KSIA can handle an estimated 7.5 million passengers every year. Divided into two levels, the terminal complex consists of check-in counters, ticket offices, self-service kiosks, lounges, retail spaces, baggage claim halls, and vantage points. Public parking space, including long-term and short-term parking, provides space for more than 6,500 cars.
As the airport is quite far off from the city, a rental car is preferred by majority of tourists. Moreover, you can enjoy sightseeing in a relaxed way, while public transportation always has its restrictions regarding timings and availability. Add a GPS device in your King Shaka Airport car rental deal if you are not familiar with city routes. Take Route N2 for Durban city, which is approximately 25 miles southwest of King Shaka Airport.
With more than fifty retail outlets located within the passenger terminal, you would love to shop at KSIA. An exclusive duty-free store operated by the Big Five Duty Free lets you pick-up wide range of products such as, liquors, cosmetics, fragrances, confectionery, clothes, and leather goods, at discounted prices.
