BA HAS AN­NOUNCED new di­rect flights to Dur­ban start­ing this win­ter. The thrice­weekly ser­vice will launch on Oc­to­ber 29, de­part­ing Heathrow at 1545 on Mon­day, Thurs­day and Satur­day, ar­riv­ing into Dur­ban’s King Shaka In­ter­na­tional air­port at 0535 the fol­low­ing day. The re­turn leg will leave the South African city at 0735 on Tues­day, Fri­day and Sun­day, land­ing back into London at 1745. This will be the only di­rect ser­vice be­tween Europe and Dur­ban, and will be con­nected by a B787-8 Dreamliner air­craft. BA pre­vi­ously served Dur­ban with a one-stop flight, via Jo­han­nes­burg, be­tween 1981 and 1999. The route will com­ple­ment BA’s ex­ist­ing year-round flights from Heathrow to Cape Town and Jo­han­nes­burg, and the car­rier’s win­ter ser­vice be­tween Gatwick and Cape Town. ba.com
