After the devastating floods in April, King Shaka airport has had to flush toilets with buckets while water pipelines are being repaired.

King Shaka International Airport was using eThekwini Municipality water tankers to fill up ablution facilities, following interruptions to its water supply due to the recent floods.

Airport Company South Africa (ACSA) regional general manager Nkosinathi Myataza said they have relied on water tankers to supply water to the facility for almost a month since water supply interruptions started on April 15.

The airport first used reserves from the main tank up until April 20. Thereafter water has been supplied to the airport via tankers to sustain operations, as the feed from the municipality was still being restored.
