Airports near Durban

Below you will find all the airports in Durban along with their distance from the city centre

How do you get to the city centre from Durban airport?

To drive from the airport to the city centre, it takes about 35 minutes, so a taxi or a journey through a ride-share app are great options. Both can be found in front of the terminal building upon arrival, however they can be quite expensive. A cheaper option is to get a shuttle bus, which can be found in the public transport parking area near the arrivals hall. The bus takes a bit longer than a taxi, but will cost you much less, so it's a great choice if you are travelling on a budget. However, the bus only runs between early morning and late evening, so if you arrive outside those hours, it won’t be available.
