MN from Durban to Cape Town

So, you want to travel to the Mother City on the big green? The good news is that there are regular Kulula flights to Cape Town from all of OR Tambo International Airport, Lanseria International Airport and King Shaka International Airport. After OR Tambo International Airport, CPT is Kulula's next biggest hub. Although the airline operates flights from Johannesburg to George and East London, it has not yet connected George and East London with Cape Town.
Kulul (airline code MN) has Johannesburg to CPT flights far better covered than from Durban to CPT, where it only has 1 flight a day.
Flights are all in the airline's signature B737-800s, and all flights are to Cape Town International Airport (the only significant commercial airport in the area).
27 Nov 2011. Comair/Kulula's share price hit a low for the year last week, and for the first time ever I paid nothing for my Kulula flight - I trust the 2 events aren't related! You see, I've got a Kulula credit card and had built up more Kulula moolah than the cost of the flight. This got me in such a good mood that I donated R20 to Kulula's casual day charity. Without taking the Kulula Moolah into account, the actual cost of the flight was only R499 each and R75 for our infant, thanks to the Kulula online sale that was running.
I tell you this not to show off at how cheaply I'm flying, but to show you what's possible - read our tips for cheap flights to get an idea what else you can do to minimise your flight costs.
After an hour spent reminding myself that next time I must leave more than an hour for packing, we caught a lift to the airport with EZ-Shuttle, who we use most of the time as they're reasonably priced, vehicles are clean & relatively modern, and they've always been on time. EZ-Shuttle also picked us up from Lanseria Airport, and even though the flight was early they were there - I asked our EZ shuttle driver where we should avoid in Joburg - top of his list is Alexander.
The check-in queue was just a couple of people, but there was a flight hiccup at boarding, as they changed the gate from A10 to C10, and we boarded just in the nick of time.
I had a snack-attack on the plane - ordered crisps & chocolate & grapetiser (soothed my conscience by telling myself I'm on holiday) - which didn't turn into a heart-attack, as the air hostess apologised for forgetting to bring the chocolate, and all ended well.
Our 1-year-old amused himself by walking up and down the aisle saying hello to everybody - who I'm happy to say were friendly back, especially the cabin crew. Our 4-year-old picked 2 books at Exclusive Books at Cape Town International Airport, which kept her entertained (she also tested whether the pilots would open their door if you knocked on it...they don't).
Murphy's law - our little one cried the whole way down, and once we were landed he fell asleep...but was awake again by the time we were ready to go to sleep :) Luckily nobody moaned on the flight, and somebody even empathised with us :)
We were at the beginnings of a highveld sunset, which darkened as the plane descended, and our pilot landed the Kulula wagon relatively smoothly. It was a silent night at Lanseria International Airport, which is still my favourite airport.
We caught a shuttle to the Garden Court Oliver Tambo (it would have been shorter to fly to O.R. Tambo, but we wanted to review the Lanseria flight - our driver told us that this was a common request), where we overnighted before our next flight - Federal Air to Vilanculos.
I've got a terrible memory, and I love it that Kulula sends me a reminder email 2 days before about our flight, to check-in online 24 hours before and details of what the weather is likely to be like.
"The crew of MN466 can't wait to welcome you, our favourite jetsetter onboard and will do their best to make your flight as comfy as possible. You'll be departing from Cape Town International Airport. If you're not sure how to get there we have created a page with maps and directions to help you out. You can check-in online 24 hours before your flight departs, but no later than 2 hours prior to departure. Or when you’re at the airport check in and print your boarding pass using the nifty self service kiosks and avoid the check in queues. Self service check-in will close 40 minutes prior to departure time. Print your boarding pass at home and drop your bag at the 'fast bag drop off' zone located at the check-in counters. It's not a good idea to check-in valuables like cameras, money, jewellery or anything else that's important to you. Bring along your flight reference number, driver’s license, green ID book or passport.
