KSIA OPERATING HOURS

ACSA spokesman, Colin Naidoo, has advised travellers to get to the airport earlier than they ordinarily would, as they will need to familiarise themselves with the new facility i.e. two hours in advance of a domestic departure and 3 hours in advance of direct international flights out of Durban on Emirates and Air Mauritius.

The pick-up areas are separated for private vehicles and public transport. The drop-off area is situated on the elevated roadway, outside the Departures Hall at the passenger terminal.
