New KZN airport flying high

2010-05-05 22:08
Durban - The newly opened King Shaka International Airport outside Durban was operating smoothly, the Airports Company South Africa (Acsa) said.

"The successful move to the new airport is a huge accomplishment, not only for the airport community here, but the country at large.

"It makes all of us proud to stand here today and report that the airport is running smoothly," said the airport's general manager, Terence Delomoney.

The new airport started operating last weekend and it will be officially opened by President Jacob Zuma on Saturday.

The old Durban International Airport was decommissioned and would be used as a back up airport during the FIFA World Cup next month.

Delomoney said the first days were busy and that thousands of people visited the airport just to see it.
