DURBAN, (CAJ News) – TRAVELSTART South Africa ,the travel booking agency, has welcomed the increasing number of flight operators launching services to Durban.

The firm said this would boost tourism in the coastal city.

“In Durban we already have the makings of a world class city – the nearby Drakensberg mountains – a World Heritage Site, the cultural tourist sites found in Zululand and the KZN Midlands, the beaches which lie north and south of the city, a first-rate stadium in Moses Mabhida, the ICC (International Conference Centre) for business and the revitalised Golden Mile, to name a few,” said the online travel agency’s Head of Communications, Russell Jarvis.

He said Durban and its surrounds had a lot to offer traveller including superb facilities.

“It’s about time Durban claimed its share of foreign tourists who visit  our shores,” said Jarvis.

An influx of international airlines announced this year that they will launch flights to Durban ahead of the 2022 Commonwealth Games the city will host.

Ethiopian Airlines is most recent airline to announce Durban flights, joining Qatar Airways, Turkish Airlines and Proflight (Zambia) in the new line up of airlines who this year confirmed they will commence flights to King Shaka International Airport.
