King Shaka International Airport is the modern, efficient transport hub serving the South African city of Durban and the surrounding area. 

 

It’s difficult not to get overwhelmed by Phuket’s natural splendour. One of Thailand’s most popular islands, it is often featured in holiday brochures designed to lure travellers looking for an exotic, picture-perfect destination.

On Phuket, expansive beaches, with powdery white sand, are complemented by crystal-clear turquoise waters. Elsewhere on the island are impressive waterfalls and lush jungles to explore.

Book a flight to Phuket with Qatar Airways to discover one of Southeast Asia’s tropical island wonderlands.

Flying from Durban

King Shaka International Airport is the modern, efficient transport hub serving the South African city of Durban and the surrounding area. This excellent airport offers customers flying from Durban with Qatar Airways an outstanding start to their journey, with high-quality facilities, friendly and helpful staff and an exuberant African atmosphere. Underneath this bright exterior is an efficient and highly professional operation that is popular with both business and leisure travellers to and from the African continent.  

Transportation and parking

Coastal Motor Transport provides regular shuttle buses to and from Durban’s city centre. The journey takes approximately 20 minutes, although a more comfortable option for customers travelling with luggage would be to book one of the many taxis available. Your hotel concierge will be able to pre-arrange a taxi on your behalf, which is advisable so that you avoid illegal taxi touts. Drivers can access the airport by taking the N2 highway. Parking, providing accommodation for about 2,000 vehicles, is available for both long- and short-term stays and within walking distance of the terminals.

At the airport

Customers flying from Durban with Qatar Airways depart from the International Departures lounge of the main terminal. The 72 check-in desks and 18 self-service kiosks are located on the upper floor. Be aware that security is very tight at the airport, so it is advisable to arrive at least two hours before your plane is due to depart so that you can pass through check-in and security with minimum fuss. Lounge areas are available for customers, with private lounges for First and Business class passengers.

Facilities and amenities

The airport has a good selection of food and drink vendors, offering everything from light refreshments and beverages to more substantial meals and international cuisine. Of particular renown is the Sushi restaurant in the Departures lounge. Shopping is catered for with a number of retail outlets selling local crafts, luxury goods, perfumes, jewellery and Duty Free products. Wi-Fi is available throughout the airport for a fee. A dedicated prayer room is available for devotions, while some business facilities can be found in premium lounges.

Arriving in Phuket

Phuket is actually Thailand’s largest island, and is a hugely popular destination for adventure tourists and travellers wishing to discover more about this enigmatic country. A tropical paradise blended with a vibrant and energetic metropolis, it is also a big draw for entrepreneurs and business travellers, thanks to a burgeoning high-tech sector.

Book a flight to Phuket with Qatar Airways and discover the gateway to Thailand. Famous for its flowers and the warm, friendly welcome visitors receive from its inhabitants, there is also plenty to see and do in Phuket. It is little wonder that Phuket is usually in the top ten of must-see destinations around the world.

Tourist attractions


As an island, fishing is central to the culture of the local people. The AC's Phuket Fishing Park allows visitors to go fishing for arapaimas, red-tailed catfish, alligator gars, and Siamese giant carp. If you prefer to watch wildlife rather than catch it then a visit to the Chana Charoen Road Crocodile Farm is an exhilarating experience.

Thailand’s Buddhist temples and statues are spectacular, and none more so than the Big Buddha, a white marble statue on the top of Naka Kerd Mountain, where you can also get a fabulous, bird’s eye view over Phuket’s east coast. Another great spot to see those extraordinary sunsets is Prom Thep Cape, 1.5 miles from Rawai Beach.

For something a little more unusual (and truly mind-boggling), try the Phuket Trick Eye Museum, a gallery of 3D paintings and optical illusions. Siam Niramit Phuket Arts Theatre puts on fascinating plays and performances that immerse visitors in the local culture, or check out the truly bizarre Baan Teelanka & A-Maze-in-Phuke, a house that has been built completely upside down and with a garden maze that will keep the kids amused for hours.

Travel Considerations

Flights to Phuket with Qatar Airways land at Phuket International Airport, in the north of Phuket Island. Visa restrictions for entry into the country will depend on your country of origin, length of stay and whether your trip is for business or pleasure. Before you fly to Phuket please check the visa and passport requirements.
