King Shaka Intl Airport Information

The King Shake International Airport, also called the La Mercy Airport, is the main airport that provides service for Durban, South Africa. It is 22 miles north of the center of Durban. It began passenger service in May 2010, before the start of the 2010, FIFA World Cup.

Nine airlines provide domestic flights to and from the airport. They include 1 Time, Airlink, British Airways represented by Comair, Kulula.com, Mango, South African Airways, South African Express and Velvet Sky. International airlines that fly into King Shaka are Air Mauritius, Airlink, and Emirates.

King Shaka Airport is accessible by the interchange of the N2 and M65. It can be reached from the N2 freeway and the R102 road. The M65 links with the N2 at Exit # 192 and the R102 between Verulam and Tongaat. Most of the roads into and out of the airport require paying a toll. Vehicles that leave the airport going south toward Durban pass through La Mercy Ramp Plaza that is at the interchange of M65 and N2. Cars arriving and leaving the airport from the north should use the Tongaat Toll Plaza at the M43 and N2 Interchange. Drivers arriving from the south along the N2 do not have to pay a toll. The N2 going south from the airport leads to the M4 south and straight to the city.

The airport has 6,500 public parking spots located both in a short-term parking lot and in a medium term parking lot. The airport has shuttle buses that go to the parking lots. It has metered taxis. Both have their designated places for dropping off and picking up passengers. These spots are next to the entrance to the terminal for international arrivals.

The passenger terminal of the airport is at the south end of the airport. It is divided into two floors. Travelers arrive on the lower level and depart from the top level. Passengers check in on the upper floor at one of the 70 counters and 18 self-service stands. The airline ticket offices are found on this level. After the travelers check in, they pass through the security areas that are divided between the domestic and international flights. After that, they move to the boarding gates.

Airplane arrivals and stores are on the lower floor. The baggage claims have five conveyers for luggage. The conveyers are designated for both domestic and international flights. Most of the airport's 50 stores and restaurants are on the lower floor.

Passengers should plan to arrive well before their departures. International travelers should arrive at least three hours before the time their flights leave. Passengers on domestic flights should plan to arrive one and a half hours proceeding the time their flights depart.
