The KZN MEC for Economic Development, Tourism & Environmental Affairs Sihle Zikalala says he is optimistic that the province will finally achieve a UK – Durban direct flight.
“We had a very productive meeting with British Airways. They see huge potential in the Durban-London route and we are extremely optimistic that our engagements will bear fruits. For a number of years now, KwaZulu-Natal has been working on securing air services between Durban and the UK and we are happy that British Airways has finally given us the opportunity to engage them on the viability and potential of the route,” Zikalala was quoted as saying in Business Report.
The MEC met with the British Airways (BA) with the airline’s high powered delegation led by director of network planning and alliances Sean Doyle, to motivate for direct air services between Durban and London on Tuesday.
