Cape Town - Turkish Airline has put plans in place to launch direct flights to Durban’s King Shaka International Airport, but the launch date has yet to be confirmed.

Turkish Airlines General Manager in Johannesburg,  Muhammed Mehdi Tunc said that the official dates for the flight launch had yet to be confirmed. 

In July 2015, the airline confirmed it had experienced a 3% increase for passengers travelling from global destinations to South Africa compared to 2014.

Qatar will launch four weekly flights to Durban via Johannesburg effective from 17th December 2015, bringing the total frequency to Johannesburg up from 10 weekly flights to a double-daily service.
