Flying with pets
kulula no longer accepts domestic pets and live animals at any of their check-in counters (excluding service dogs which are permitted for check-in and in the cabin). This new process provides a modernised animal-friendly environment for the acceptance and delivery of domestic pets and will ensure your furry (or scaly) friend reaches their destination safely and comfortably. Please visit kulula pet information for more info on travelling with your pets.
Kulula strongly recommends that passengers arrive at the airport at least 2 hours ahead of their scheduled flights. Please expect delayed processing times to access the terminal, due to screening by the Port Health Authority, before being permitted to access the airport terminal.
Customers will further be required to have the following:
• Face Mask
• Printed/Electronic Boarding Pass (phone or tablet)
• ID or Passport
Check in on-the-go using the kulula app or from the website. For your convenience, you may check in online for your flight 24 hours prior to departure and print your own boarding pass from your home or office. Online check-in and kulula app check-in close 2 hours prior to departure. kulula check-in counters at the airport open 90 minutes before domestic flights depart and close 45 minutes before flights depart.
If you're travelling with friends or family, to ensure you sit together, please check in 24 hours before flight departure.
You can have the certainty of sitting together on the plane when you pre-pay and secure your favourite seat by selecting a pre-paid seat. This option is available at the time of making your booking or 24 hours before your flight departure.
