King Shaka International Airport (IATA code: DUR, ICAO code: FALE), abbreviated as KSIA, is the primary international airport serving Durban, South Africa. Located in La Mercy, KwaZulu-Natal, approximately 35 kilometers (22 miles) north of the city centre of Durban, it was inaugurated on 1 May 2010, just over a month before the start of the 2010 FIFA World Cup. It replaced Durban International Airport and uses the same IATA airport code.
Although the larger airport was built to grow the area's international services, it is also a key airport for domestic services throughout South Africa, serving the "Golden Triangle" between Cape Town International Airport, O. R. Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg, and KSIA itself with 7 passenger and 2 cargo airlines offering domestic air services.
The airport forms part of the Dube TradePort, which will additionally consist of a trade zone linked to the airport's cargo terminal, facilities to support the airport such as nearby offices and transit accommodation for tourists, an integrated agricultural export zone, and an IT platform
The airport recorded 6,099,628 passengers in 2019–2020, with the majority (5,699,080) being domestic passengers, 393,309 being international, and a small percentage of traffic being classified as "unscheduled".
