How to get cheap flights to Durban
Being one of the more popular destinations to fly to (for both business and leisure) means that prices are always going to be quite high. However you can give yourself the upper hand when trying to find these cheaper Durban flights by flying on the less popular days (weekends, peak periods, Monday mornings), and flying during less popular ones (mid-week, mid-day) etc. We have an article on how to find cheap flights in South Africa here. It can also be cheaper if you fly from Lanseria instead of OR Tambo, and if you book very last minute.
