About Pietermaritzburg Airport

Visitors that have a fun trip to the Natal Midlands planned can fly in from Johannesburg’s OR Tambo International Airport to the Pietermaritzburg Airport. Also known as Oribi Airport, this is a small, but efficient airport that serves the whole area around Pietermaritzburg, including the Midlands and some of the outer areas on the west of Durban.

In 2013, the terminal building and tarmac were both revamped. This airport was one of the few that could open for domestic travel during 2020 when others remained closed due to travel restrictions as a result of Covid. It offers flights to and from Johannesburg’s international airport on the following airlines:

• Airlink
• South African Express

The luxury private line, Federal Air, and other private charter jets also make use of this airport in Pietermaritzburg. There are facilities that allow for safe landing at night, an aero-club on the air field, and parachuting facilities.

Pietermaritzburg is a charming city in KwaZulu-Natal and offers museums, animal sanctuaries, pretty outside spaces, and fabulous eateries. As an interesting spot to explore, there’s also plenty of accommodation in Pietermaritzburg; which includes B & Bs, hotels, guesthouses, and self-catering holiday homes. It’s only about an hour’s drive from Durban and around five hours from Johannesburg.
