Terminal Information – Departing

This is only a guideline. Always check your boarding pass for up-to-date terminal information.

Flights to Durban leave from terminal B of Johannesburg O.R. Tambo International Airport. This is the domestic terminal. Shops in this terminal include Occhiali (accessories), CNA (newsagents), Exclusive Books, Stogies (cosmetics), Capi (electronics), @Play (sports) and Makgala's (jewellery). There's also a pharmacy on the retail level.

If you like to eat before boarding you'll be fairly spoiled for choice. The domestic terminal offers a range of places to eat including local favourite Anat, a Shawarma joint. There's also a KFC if you're in the mood for fried chicken and a Debonair's Pizza for Italian snacks. There's a Wimpy for burgers and a Raj for Indian cuisine. Fournos Bakery serve up tasty baked goods, but if you're in the mood for something healthy you can grab a salad from Kauai. There are a few coffee shops including Cafe Dulce and Cafe Nescafe, as well as pub Keg & Aviator.

The domestic terminal doesn't have free Wi-Fi, but you can get connected at the Airport Online outlet just after passing through security. There are five lounges in the domestic terminal: South African Airways Lounge, British Airways Slow Lounge, Bidvest Sky Lounge and Menzies Mashonza Lounge.

Practical Information

Although this is an internal flight, it's a good idea to keep your passport on you. Airline staff sometimes ask to see photographic identification during check-in or at the boarding gate. We recommend arriving at the airport no later than 90 minutes before flight departure.
