One hop – non-stop: Durban to London

3 months ago written by

The first non-stop flight between Durban and Europe will start in October this year when British Airways will start flying between King Shaka International and London Heathrow.

BA says it will use its new Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner (pictured) for the flights with return fares priced at just short of R12,000  including taxes.

Sue Petrie, Commercial Manager of British Airways Southern Africa, says the flights should help grow international tourism to KwaZulu Natal and provide a more convenient alternative for the province’s business travellers and holidaymakers wanting to get to the UK and Europe.

The winter 2018 schedule will operate as follows: Flight BA41 will depart London Heathrow on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays at 15h45 and arrive in Durban at 05h35 the next day. Flight BA40 will depart Durban on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays at 07h35 and arrive in London at 17h45.

The summer 2019 schedule will operate as follows: Flight BA41 will depart London on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays at 16h45 and arrive in Durban at 05h35 the next day. Flight BA40 will depart Durban on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays at 07h35 and arrive in London at 18h45.
