Johannesburg, 16 August 2017 - Today, we are truly excited at, because Mzanzi’s most fun airline, will be celebrating its Schweet 16th Birthday. At 16 there is no doubt that we are the coolest teen on South Africa’s proverbial airline strip and to get the party started we would like to spread the love by giving away 160 000 Avios, plus two car hire vouchers from Europcar and Tempest to one wander lusting kulula fan, every day for the next 16 days.

Just as our name suggests it will be super “easy” for fans to get their hands on the 160 000 Avios which converts into R9500 worth of travelbank credit on and together with some shiny wheels from our car partners they will be able to make their next trip to somewhere exotic a proper celebration. All South Africans are eligible to enter and the entry mechanism is simple. Just wish kulula a happy #kululaSchweet16 on Facebook, Twitter, Google+ or Instagram and sign up to our fanmail on the website. A wish from one deserving fan each day, could be all it takes to win a share of the over 2.5 million up for grabs in Avios that will turn any South African’s wildest travel wish into a reality.
