British Airways to launch first long-haul flights from London to Durban

British Airways palns on adding another long-haul destination to its network, with a new flight to South Africa’s beach city, Durban, commencing this autumn. British Airways reservations can be made for this route now, the first flight scheduled to depart 29 October 2018. BA's new route will fly between the destinations thrice a week, creating a non-stop link from Heathrow. It will be the only direct flight between Europe and Durban. The new flight will take BA passengers just 12 hours to complete the 5935 mile journey, saving precious time usually wasted with connections in Istanbul, Doha or Nairobi. The new link makes access easier to the eastern province of KwaZulu-Natal, which extends along the Indian Ocean coast to the southern frontiers of Swaziland and Mozambique.


This flight will link Europe with a popular African tourist destination, one which is particularly popular in the domestic tourism industry.
