British Airways

We’ve signed an interline agreement, with our big sister British Airways (operated by Comair) that basically allows us to offer you the best of both worlds on one site. You can arrive at your destination with British Airways and come home with kulula.com, or vice-versa.

This gives you the power to choose the best price and option for your needs on one website. 

When your flight number starts with BA - you know you’re flying with British Airways. Your British Airways reference number is found on the travel reservation PDF emailed to you once the booking has been confirmed.

When flying with British Airways all the British Airways terms and conditions will apply. You will also enjoy the premium service customers are accustomed to when flying with British Airways.

Take special care of the various rules that apply to British Airways flights. Below is a short summary but be sure to read the full terms and conditions before you purchase a flight.
