In addition, the firm has yet to determine of it will run the service under kulula, its low cost brand, or BA Comair.
Fouad Caunhye, regional manager South Africa for Emirates, welcomed the news.
He told Travel News Weekly:"Emirates has sustained consistently strong load factors on flights to and from Durban. We are at 80 per cent capacity on the route. The launch of Comair's flights will help open Durban to the global market".
