Flying South Africa. whoever, wherever, whyever
Johannesburg, 26 January 2013: On Saturday, a wildly diverse mix of ordinary and extraordinary South Africans made history by jetting off on ‘The Most South African Flight Ever’, orchestrated by South Africa’s most-loved airline, kulula.
The unique 189 individuals chosen to represent their tribes on this momentous, never-been-done-before flight indulged in a morning of all things South African. In the departure hall they were entertained by an array of proudly South African acts, which included some power-dressing gumboot dancers, a contortionist, a magician, puppeteers and soccer ball tricksters. After entering the boarding gates, the entertainment continued as surprised passengers and airport staff were treated to a musical set by zef-rapper, Jack Parow.
On this flight from Lanseria to Lanseria, passengers enjoyed a scenic tour of the Jozi skies, while being entertained by MC and comedian, Kurt Schoonraad.
No South African flight would be complete without the National Anthem, so a pop-up choir scattered throughout the plane surprised passengers with their rendition.
“kulula, has grown from nothing to what it is today by flying South Africans from all walks of life, all around the country, day in, day out. So to celebrate this and kulula’s passion for travel, we orchestrated this fun momentous flight to celebrate with our fans,” says Nadine Damen, Marketing Manager for kulula.com.
