About the airline

Kalula is a low cost South African carrier headquartered in Johannesburg, Gauteng. As a subsidiary of British Airways Franchisee ComAir, the airline has been operating domestic flights in South Africa for over a decade.

Given the extreme competition new airlines face from state owned South African Airways and its low cost subsidiary, FlyMango Airlines, this is no mean feat.

Boasting a fleet of 12 super green Boeing 737 aircraft, the Kulula.com brand has become an unmistakable and well loved fixture in the skies of South Africa.

About the Kalula brand

The word "kulula" means easy in Xhosa and Zulu, and is central to the airline's mission: making travel as cheap and easy as possible.

From their in-flight announcements to their advertising campaigns and brand identity, the Kalula brand positioning is distinctly tongue in cheek. A recent iteration of the airline's livery featured the phrase, "The Most South African Airways", taking a very amusing swipe at the country's flag carrier airline, SAA.

SAA was not impressed, laying a complaint against Kalula with the SA Advertising Standards Authority. But by July 2013 a ruling was passed that Kalula had, in fact, not breached the ASA's Code of Good Practice. While there was a potential legal risk associated with such a campaign, the free publicity generated around it no doubt paid off handsomely for Kalula.

This approach, combined with highly amusing and frequently combative advertising campaigns, has helped the airline establish itself as a consumer champion brand.

The in-flight experience

High safety standards, super low fares and a very cheeky approach to in-flight service delivery are all things that can be expected during your next Kalula flight.

Refreshments and Woolworths pre-packed snacks can be purchased on-board; free standard catering is not provided to help keep running costs and Kalula flight prices down to an absolute minimum. The airline's craft feature a space efficient 2 / 3 / 2 seat layout.
