Kulula flights from CPT to OR Tambo

CPT to JHB is Kulula's main flight route, and there are multiple daily Kulula flights from Cape Town to Johannesburg's OR Tambo International Airport as well as to Lanseria International Airport (CPT-HLA). If you're in a hurry, their Cape Town to to Lanseria flights are 5 minutes faster than from CPT to OR Tambo International Airport.
Flights to OR Tambo take you to the east of the city, which is convenient for trips to the old city centre or to Soweto. Flights to Lanseria Airport take you to the north of the city, which a lot of businessmen like as the offer easy access to the Sandton business district, as well as to Pretoria.
For onward connections to other cities, OR Tambo is a far better option than Lanseria Airport, with links to both all the cities in South Africa as well as many worldwide destinations. Almost all scheduled international flights are from OR Tambo International Airport.
The airline flies B737-800s on both the CT-JNB as well as the CT-HLA routes.
Kulula pioneered the CT to Lanseria flights, and had an exclusivity agreement with the airport for a while, much to the chagrin of the erstwhile 1time Airline in particular. Ironically, once the exclusivity ended and 1time flew to Lanseria, they soon ditched the route. Mango Airlines started flying Cape Town to Lanseria, and ever since have been engaged in a price war with Kulula on the route, to the extent that airfares from CT to Lanseria are most of the time cheaper than CPT to OR Tambo.
Kulula flights from Cape Town to Johannesburg International Airport (later to be renamed OR Tambo International Airport) were the 2nd to be flown by the airline in August 2001 (after the first flight was flown in the opposite direction, from JNB to CPT). Almost 5 years later, in February 2006, the airline commenced flying from Cape Town to Lanseria Airport.
4 September 2013 : Rating 5/5 : My sister and I went to Sun City for the week end and we flew Kulula.Com, from Cape Town to JHB. What an experience for my sister, it being her first time on an aeroplane. We met my boyfriend at Sun City for the weekend. We had a royal time, and at Johannesburg airport where we waited for out taxi to take us to Sun City we met the most friendly people - everybody was laughing and asking if they can help. On the flight everybody was friendly an helpful. From the first time I flew Kulula they impressed me so much which is why I choose them, and also their flights are the cheapest. Author : Erika Theart
