Fly Kulula Airline In South Africa

I received an 📧 email from a friend a while ago, showing some great photographs of …

✈ Kulula Airline Fun Paint Schemes. ✈

I have to be honest with you, I had never heard of this airline before receiving this 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.

As well, check the airlines short, but very funny promotional 📹 video below! 🙂

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, resulting in them becoming one of the more recognized airlines in the industry. 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 airline, with little or no regard for safety.

Kulula Airlines Meets International Safety Standards

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;

✔ Flight operations;

✔ Operational control;

✔ Flight dispatch;

✔ Cabin operations;

✔ Operational security;

✔ Ground handling;

✔ Cargo operations.

The marketing manager for Kulula Airline is proud to say…

IOSA accreditation demonstrates our ongoing commitment to airline safety – our number one priority.”

Kalulu Crew Make You Feel Happy

It appears that one of the job requirements required for a position at Kulula Airline, 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 definitely 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!

Fun 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! 😀

Humor With 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!
