Durban - Aircraft headed to King Shaka International Airport in Durban from OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg were still delayed on Thursday morning, the Airports Company of SA (Acsa) said.
“Things are almost back to normal, there are some aircraft still delayed from Johannesburg,” said Acsa spokesperson Colin Naidoo.
On Wednesday night five plane-loads of football fans headed for the World Cup semi-final between Spain and Germany suffered severe delays at King Shaka International Airport, resulting in some fans missing the match.
Four planes from Johannesburg and one from Cape Town thought to be carrying around 400 passengers in total were delayed after the airport was swamped by arrivals.
