The route will be operated three times a week out of Heathrow

The new flight launches on October 29 when it will be operated three times a week using a Boeing 787-8 and departing from Heathrow

 

BA chairman and CEO Alex Cruz said: “Durban’s warm water, hot summers and laid-back beachy atmosphere make this coastal city the perfect holiday destination.

 

"It is a gateway to many nature reserves, parks and historic sites, and has a thriving food, drink and art scene; defining the city as a must-visit for culture and adventure.

 

“Durban is also home to the busiest port in South Africa and is a large manufacturing hub, so the new route will secure another important link between the UK and the region that will be a welcome addition for business travellers.”

 

Sihle Zikalala, minister for the department of economic development, tourism and environmental affairs, added: “We are proud to be able to showcase the city of Durban to the world through this new British Airways direct flight, the sheer diversity in travel and business opportunities that visitors can access through this gateway into the province of KwaZulu-Natal will unlock enormous potential.
