Leaving the airport, the airport access road joins either the N2 in one direction or the R102 and M65 in the other. Both routes will take you into the city.

Ten airlines fly to Durban Airport, the majority of which are either internal or African. All are scheduled. The following countries fly into Durban Airport UAE, UK, Mauritius, Turkey and Namibia.
