King Shaka International Airport (KSIA) is the principal airport serving Durban, South Africa. The airport opened for commercial services in 2010 shortly before the FIFA World Cup in South Africa, replacing the decommissioned Durban International Airport. Durban International was replaced due to runway constraints, with its 2,400m runway limiting operations to short-haul passenger and cargo services. King Shaka International has a much longer runway (3,700m), which has enabled to airport to attract intercontinental services. King Shaka International has extensive connections to major cities and towns in South Africa, in addition to regional services within southern Africa and intercontinental services to the Middle East.
