Kulula flights are often amongst some of the cheapest available and their unique humour is very welcome amongst travellers. Kulula is owned and operated by Comair who also form part of the British Airways contingency in the South African domestic flights market.

It’s possible to select a seat online 24 hours prior to departure, but by then seats are limited and you may not get the seat you want. Kulula Airlines want you to love flying as much as they do, so you can choose the seat you want before flying for R35 p/p or book an extra seat for your personal comfort.
