Kulula Airlines

Welcome on board this Kulula Airlines flight to Durban. Please pay attention to the safety announcement, because you will be writing a test shortly.” Kulula humour has been the unofficial trademark of South Africa’s first low cost airline since launching operations in 2001. The name Kulula is derived from the Zulu word for ‘easily’ and this is exactly how the airline operates. As a no frills, no fuss budget airline in South Africa, Kulula Air aims to provide a hassle free experience for customers from check in, to their tongue-in-cheek inflight services and safety demonstrations. No matter which way you look at it, Kulula Airlines really is a fun way to fly.

Kulula Airlines check in counters open 90 minutes before domestic flights depart and close 30 minutes before the flight departs. Bring your ID document, driver’s license or Passport as well as your Travelstart flight booking reference to check-in for your Kulula flight.

Green Fleet

As the budget airline arm of British Airways Comair in South Africa, Kulula has helped make domestic travel in South Africa affordable.

The Kulula fleet is green and their livery varies from flashy designs that adorn the sides of their planes to the ever-recognisable mambo green they’re known for. Some memorable livery includes the ‘This Way Up’ plane and the ‘Flying 101’ design.

The Kulula Boeing 737 planes are fuel efficient and offer enhanced legroom in the low cost range.

As a major player in South Africa, Kulula’s fleet flies to all centres in South Africa including Lanseria airport in the north of Johannesburg. See the Kulula Airlines route map.



Inflight Services

The Kulula inflight experience is enhanced by the pay-onboard catering service. Pay cash or by credit card for a variety of enjoyable snacks and beverages by Woolworths on all Kulula flights. The airline also caters for vegetarians.
