Durban – Charter airline Federal Air and the Zululand District Municipality have announced the launch of daily direct flights between Durban’s Virginia Airport and Ulundi’s Prince Mangosuthu Buthelezi Airport.
This follows the launch of scheduled flights by the light aviation operator between Pietermaritzburg Airport and Ulundi in July. It also comes in the wake of the KZN Treasury allocating R30 million for the upgrade of Ulundi airport.
“Business people, government and tourists will be able to fly directly to Ulundi from Virginia Airport every weekday… The direct link between Durban and Ulundi would make travel safer and quicker,” said Zululand District mayor Zanele kaMagwaza-Msibi.
Troy Reiser, managing director of Federal Air, said the airline was proud to be a partner in the initiative by the provincial government and the district to bring an air service to these vital regional centres. – The Mercury
