kulula.com flying high, with five-millionth passenger taking to the skies

Since taking to the skies less than five-years ago, South Africa's low fare airline kulula.com, has played a significant role in growing the country's domestic air travel market. During this time many milestones have been notched up by the popular home-grown brand, with the achievement of its five-millionth passenger, the most recent to top its charts.

Tamara Groenewald, traveling on flight MN610 achieved this status when she flew from Johannesburg to Durban.

According to kulula.com Marketing Manager, Nadine Damen, the airline which has been operating since August 2001, has shown year-on-year growth of 20%, proving that the South African traveler has been eager to find value-for-money alternatives to traditional air travel offerings.

So successful has the airline been in its positioning that it has recently been recognised as South Africa's largest online retailer, boasting internet sales in excess of R3.5 million per day and has grown it's network offering to 12 destinations, and recently announced that they would be launching a rewards based credit card in the next few months.

"Helping more and more South African's take to our beautiful skies has always been our passion and drive. It will not be long before we announce our ten-millionth passenger, and we certainly look forward to celebrating that day in the near future" concluded Damen.
