 DUR Durban King Shaka Airport Info & Guide


Durban King Shaka International Airport

Where is Durban King Shaka Airport?  


Durban is South Africa's 3rd largest city, and its busiest port. It is also a major tourism centre, a result of its warm subtropical climate and beautiful beaches.


It was in Durban that, as a young lawyer, Gandhi first employed non-violent civil disobedience, aiding the large Indian resident community's struggle for rights. Added to the indigenous Zulu heritage, the city's Indian culture makes for a city of fascinating msrkets, cuisine and performance arts.


Durban King Shaka International Airport (IATA: DUR, ICAO: FALE), or Durban King Shaka Airport, also known as La Mercy Airport, is located in La Mercy, about 35 kilometres (22 miles) north of Durban city centre, in eThekwini Metropolitan Municipality, in KwaZulu-Natal province, South Africa. DUB is part of the Dube Tradeport, a trade zone that includes transit accomodations for tourists. The airport is sometimes referred to as KSIA, but this is not an official airport code. The airport is named to honour Shaka, leader of the Zulu nation in the 19th century.
