International flights

kulula was the first low cost airline in South Africa and will continue to fly in our beautiful country. With Africa being such a diverse and exciting continent however, we figured why not help our fans fly to as many corners of the world as possible?

A ‘code share’ agreement is an airline term used when two airlines agree to sell seats on each other’s behalf in the respective domestic markets. We’ve looked at new destinations and with the help of a few handpicked partners; we’re now able to take kulula passengers to new heights.

Important to remember when travelling to other countries:

Passports and visas

Check your passport validity dates as well as all destinations, even for stop overs. Many countries require your passport to be valid during and beyond the length of your stay, so check what applies to you(it’s normally six months after your date of travel, and must contain at least three blank pages).

Make sure you have the right travel documents for your trip.Check which destination countries require visas (including any necessary transit visas) and apply well ahead of time. These can take up to six weeks to arrange depending on the Consulate or Embassy, and may also change, so be sure to check these regularly.

Important notice: If you’re travelling with a minor (younger than 18 years of age) from October, 2014, you’ll need to produce an unabridged birth certificate for the child. Learn more on this new regulation on unabridged birth certificates here.

Make sure you have the correct jabs (vaccinations) and an overall medical check before you travel at least 4 – 8 weeks before you depart. It’s best to discuss this with your Doctor.

Ebola virus: Make sure you're familiar with the medical restrictions of countries you will be travelling to, and that you have not visited high risk areas for contagious diseases. Contact the country embassy to ensure there are no current restrictions on travel.
