From May 1, Durban will be served by the new King Shaka International Airport at La Mercy, built at a cost of R7bn.
Melomoney said the sale of the old site was dependent not only on Acsa, but on the national and provincial governments. Both Acsa and the government have previously stated they will not sell the old Durban airport to anyone who is going to operate it as an airport, as that would provide competition to the new airport.
