Accommodation near Durban (King Shaka) International Airport

Each year, tourists flock to the golden beaches of South Africa's "Surf City" through King Shaka International Airport. The airport is located in La Mercy, some 35 km outside of Durban city centre. Closely located near Durban beaches and a host of hotels, King Shaka International Airport is positioned ideally to make for a comfortable travel experience.

King Shaka airport replaced the existing Durban International Airport in 2010 to better accommodate International flights and visitors during the FIFA World Cup. The original Durban airport saw a large volume of domestic flights but not many international flights due to the runway being too short for larger aircrafts to land.
King Shaka International Airport was constructed to be much larger, with a longer runway to accommodate larger aircraft.

Airlines that fly to and from King Shaka Airport include South African Airways, British Airways, Kulula, Mango and recently SA Fair.

The modern King Shaka International Airport offers an enticing range of restaurants, bars, shops and services. It also boasts a luxury travellers lounge - the Umphafa VIP Lounge.

The airport forms part of the Dube Tradeport, which consists of a trade zone linked to the airport's cargo terminal, facilities to support the airport such as nearby offices and transit accommodation for tourists, an integrated agricultural export zone, and an IT platform.

In 2012, King Shaka International was named the third best airport in Africa in the World Airport Awards, coming in after Cape Town International and OR Tambo International.

The airport is situated 35 km from Durban, 60 km from Amanzimtoti and 140 km from Richards Bay.

La Mercy Beach
Get away from all the beach bums and relax where it feels like the beach belongs to you. Do it soon, once the secret is out you would have missed your chance.
