Kulula Airlines

Kulula is a low-cost South-African airline that doesn’t take itself too seriously. 

Radio spot:

“Man go to Lanseria Airport. Mango counter. Man wanna go Cape Town. Man find out man cannot go. No man go. Then man go Kulula counter. Kulula go. Kulula call mango on orange once every hour. So you see, if man wanna go on Kulula, man go. 80% of our Lanseria flights every week are Kulula flights. So if you’re travelling to or from Lanseria it is the only way to go man.”

Check out their new livery! And get a kick out of the comments at the end of the photos.

The captain’s window is marked with the big cheese (”captain, my captain!”), the co-pilot’s window with co-captain (the other pilot on the PA system) and the jump seat is for wannabe pilots.

Other Kulula humour:

Kulula’s airline attendants and pilots are known for injecting a sense of humour into situations:

“Please pay attention to the safety announcement, because you will be writing a test shortly”.
“If you are caught smoking, you will be asked to leave the aircraft”.


“Me Tarzan, You on hold”, when phoning Kulula and being put on hold.
“To operate your seat belt, insert the metal tab into the buckle, and pull the belt tight. It works just like every other seat belt; and, if you don’t know how to operate one by now, then you probably shouldn’t be allowed out in public unsupervised.”
“There may be 50 ways to leave your lover, but there are only 4 ways out of this airplane.”
“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 travelling with you, secure your mask before assisting with theirs. If you are travelling with more than one small child, pick your favourite.”
“Your seat cushions can be used for flotation; and in the event of an emergency water landing, please paddle to shore and take them with our compliments.”
As the plane landed and was coming to a stop at Durban Airport, a lone voice came over the loudspeaker: “Whoa, big fella. WHOA!”
“Please be sure to take all of your belongings. If you’re going to leave anything, please make sure it’s something we’d like to have.”
“Ladies and gentlemen, we have landed in Cape Town . Please take all your possessions. Anything left behind will be shared equally between staff. Please note we do not accept unwanted mothers-in-law or children.”
“As you exit the plane, make sure to gather all of your belongings. Anything left behind will be distributed evenly among the flight attendants. Please do not leave children or spouses.”
“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!”
“Welcome to Johannesburg, if this is not where you were intending to go then you have a bit of a problem.”
