Kulula Airlines
Image of Kulula

kulula means “easily” in South Africa’s most spoken language, Zulu. It is also the name of the country’s first no-frills, low cost domestic airline.

Launched in July 2001, Kulula started operating in August 2001, under the ownership of Comair Limited. kulula initially only offered daily flights between Johannesburg and Cape Town, and introduced a Cape Town to Durban route later that year.

Over the years, kulula has expanded their routes to cover more of South Africa’s major cities. They have also expended their services beyond flights, and now offer car rental services, chauffeured airport shuttles and accommodation too. South Africa’s consumers support them wholeheartedly, and have helped to make them South Africa’s largest online retailer, with sales in excess of R2 billion per year!

Jetsetters, kulula loyalty club, was recently launched and offers specials and promotions, as well as rewards in the form of discounts on future Kulula flights, to those who loyally support the airline. Discovery Vitality Members also qualify for additional discounts on their kulula airfare, and they are even able to use their Discovery Miles to pay for part of their ticket.

kulula believe it is not enough to just be a low-cost carrier, so to make things more exciting, they regular run specials on low fares.

Kulula's Fleet:

kulula flies a total of four aircraft: a Boeing 737 – 200 and three Boeing 737 – 400’s. These aircraft have more legroom and are more fuel efficient than kulula’s previous aircraft, and are less harmful to the environment. The planes are also meticulously maintained so as to comply with the strictest of safety standards, so you can rest assured, you are in good hands when you fly with kulula.

Seats are assigned to passengers at the time of check-in. For safety reasons, parents with children and elderly persons may not sit in emergency aisles.
