Kulula flights are just about ready to occupy air traffic at a time when South Africa is tentatively moving towards normalcy.

Kulula flights return in April with these routes

From Thursday 1 April 2021, passengers of the low-cost airline will be able to book domestic flights between Lanseria, Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town.

“Similar to the re-introduction of its other routes, kulula.com will commence with a limited schedule, adding additional frequencies over the next couple of months,” Kulula noted in a statement.

This cautionary restart comes as a boost for domestic travellers who can now book their interprovincial flights on the airline’s website and other third-party service providers.

‘We look forward to welcoming back our customers’

Executive Head of Revenue Management Desmond O’Connor could not hold back his elation at the prospect of returning to business and kicking off the airline’s ramp-up strategy.

“We are upbeat and extremely excited about the reopening of our services back at Lanseria, as part of our ramp-up strategy. At kulula.com we aim to make travel as simple, easy, and convenient as possible and we look forward to welcoming back all our customers onboard our flights, especially those from the north-western parts of Johannesburg and Pretoria,” he said.

Covid-19 processes and unflown tickets

Since it is domestic travel, passengers are not required to carry travel permits with negative Covid-19 test results. However, as it is mandatory everywhere, face masks are compulsory.

If you still hold an unused flight ticket for departure between 14 March and 30 November 2020, you can still allocate its value for future purchases made between 1 January and 30 November 2021.

The low-cost airline will not be issuing refunds for unflown tickets.

“With the reintroduction of flights between Lanseria, Durban, and Cape Town and with faster check-in processes, as well as a shorter walk from the car park to the terminal, it’s an obvious choice for visitors that frequently fly into Gauteng”, concludes O’Connor.
