There has been talk of upgrades to King Shaka International Airport over the last few years as it will reach capacity within the next 5 years. Many people thought King Shaka International Airport would be a white elephant and it certainly has proved them wrong.
Plans have been in the works to add some additional parking bays for larger aircraft. I won’t bore you with the details and technical stuff.
Basically they will be adding 2 additional aircraft stands for larger aircraft, mostly international flights, but which can accommodate small aircraft too. The 2 additional stands will be remote stands, so they won’t be connected to the airport in any way.
Here is the new masterplan for King Shaka International Airport.
The 2 new remote stands, to be named Foxtrot Apron. (4 were proposed)
In addition to the 2 new remote stands they will extend the Bravo Taxiway onto the runways
