Fly Kulula Airline in South Africa
I received an email from a friend the other day showing some great photographs and a little Kulula Airline Humor. I have to be honest with you, I had never heard of this airline before receiving the email.
After viewing the unique paint schemes on their airplanes, I had to investigate the airline further and share some of their photos with you.
First, have a quick look at this short but very funny Kulula Airline Humor promotional video.

Kulula Airline Is One of Three Domestic Carriers
From what I have been able to gather, Kulula airways is one of three lower cost airlines flying domestically throughout South Africa. Their marketing and brand strategy is making leaps and bounds, making them one of the more recognized airlines in the industry as a result. The airlines head office is situated in Johannesburg, South Africa.
They are a more casual type of carrier, where staff and crew are far more relaxed and humorous then the majority of other carriers worldwide. This however, does not in any way, distinguish them as a fly by night airlines with little or no regard for safety.
Kulula Airlines Meet International Safety Standards
One of the Many Great Paint Schemes on Kulula Planes
The opposite is quite true; in fact this airline is recognized by the IOSA as having met their stringent international safety standards. These tough standards include…
Aircraft engineering and maintenance
Corporate organization and management systems
The marketing manager for Kulula airways is proud to say…
“IOSA accreditation demonstrates our ongoing commitment to airline safety – our number one priority.”
Kulula Airline Humor Includes Highly Professional Staff
Kalulu Crew Make You Feel Happy
It appears that one of the job requirements required for a position at Kulula is to have a positive attitude and a great sense of humor. While commitment and safety are priority one, staff and crew seem to all have a very positive outlook and seem to enjoy their chosen profession.
Management are always coming up with truly unique and fun ways to make them different from the rest. You have to love what they came up with when naming their Loyalty program points.
They called their air reward mile points ‘ kulula moolah ’.
You Just Have to Smile at This!
Kulula Airline Humor – Flight Announcements
Here are some examples of some actual reported flight attendant announcements during typical Kulula airline flights:
- “There may be 50 ways to leave your lover, but there are only 4 ways out of this airplane.”
- “Thank you for flying Kulula. We hope you enjoyed giving us the business as much as we enjoyed taking you for a ride.”
- “In the event of a sudden loss of cabin pressure, masks will descend from the ceiling. Stop screaming, grab the mask, and pull it over your face. If you have a small child traveling with you, secure your mask before assisting with theirs. If you are traveling with more than one small child, pick your favorite.”
- “Weather at our destination is 50 degrees with some broken clouds, but we’ll try to have them fixed before we arrive. Thank you, and remember nobody loves you or your money more than Kulula Airlines.”
The pilot during his welcome message:
“Kulula Airlines is pleased to announce that we have some of the best flight attendants in the industry. Unfortunately, none of them are on this flight!”
After a very hard landing the flight attendant said:
“That was quite a bump and I know what y’all are thinking. I’m here to tell you it wasn’t the airline’s fault, it wasn’t the pilot’s fault, it wasn’t the flight attendant’s fault, it was the asphalt.”
Some Christmas Humor!
I could go on and on with reported humor on Kulula planes, here is just one more and my favorites! 😀
Kulula Airline Humor and Pilots
A Pilot reported after making a particularly hard landing:
The airline had a policy which required the first officer to stand at the door while the passengers exited, smile, and give them a “Thanks for flying our airline”. He said that, in light of his bad landing, he had a hard time looking the passengers in the eye, thinking that someone would have a smart comment. Finally everyone had gotten off except for a little old lady walking with a cane.
“Sir, do you mind if I ask you a question?”
“Why, no Ma’am,” said the pilot. “What is it?”
The little old lady said,
“Did we land, or were we shot down?”
It is so rare these days to see employees happy and creating a wonderful work environment for everyone to enjoy. I would be willing to bet there are very few employees with Kulula Airlines who do not enjoy coming to work. Hats off to the airlines management and marketing staff for allowing humor into the work place which I am sure benefits everyone involved, including paying customers!
