Richards Bay Airport Mini Guide

Who Flies to Richards Bay?
Usually it’s business travellers or workers in the coal and mineral industries around the city but there’s a small but growing tourist element to the flights as people come to see the extensive coastal dunes with their almost unique dune forests away from the shore. There are many completely deserted beaches too but be careful of sharks as most of them are unprotected.

How Easy is it to get to Richards Bay Airport?
Despite only having one route, travel to Richards Bay is actually relatively easy. Many international flights land at Johannesburg’s OR Tambo Airport and passengers can then make a connection there to a South African Express flight to Richards Bay. With the airport being just on the outskirts of the city, it won’t be long before you’re in your accommodation.

What’s the Airport Like?
It’s a very small airport with a short runway that can only accept Dash 300 aircraft, limiting its operating capacity. A planned airport overhaul and extension is currently on hold until a dispute over land is sorted out. For now, it’s basic with few facilities which are limited to a snack bar serving hot and cold drinks together with sandwiches and other pre-packed food. There’s a single kiosk which stocks a narrow range of magazines and newspapers. The airport is devoid of banks, post offices, cash machines and Wi-Fi so you’ll need to be fairly self-sufficient whilst waiting for your flight.

There’s a good chance you’ll be visiting Richards Bay on business as it’s not known for its tourist attractions. If you’ve got an important business meeting or after work, want to explore a little of the coast, then check out our low prices on Richards Bay car hire
Car hire needn’t be an expensive addition to a business trip or holiday, especially with the deals that we are able to make on your behalf. Simply let us know your travel plans and we’ll do our utmost to search the top Richards Bay car hire companies for the best deals.

There’s no point getting a cheap price if lots of essentials are added on as extras which is why we make sure that the price we offer you is inclusive. You’ll get comprehensive insurance cover, collision damage waiver and roadside assistance all included in the price as well as access to what we consider to be the most attentive customer service.
