Kulula vs Mango : which is better?

Kulula Durban to Cape Town

Use the flight bookings tool on the left to book a cheap Kulula flight from Durban to Cape Town (DUR to CPT) - type your flight details in the airfare comparison tool on the left & magic...a list of airline prices will appear :) There is only one Kulula DUR-CPT flight a day, but there are numerous more which can be booked on their website through their co-brand, British Airways (both Kulula and British Airways SA flights are run by Comair).

The flights are from Durban's King Shaka International Airport (DUR), and to Cape Town International Airport; and are scheduled to take 130 minutes.

Flights are in Kulula's signature Boeing 737-800s, so expect a medium-sized jet experience.

(if you're flying the other way, see our Kulula Cape Town to Durban flights page).

Where to find Kulula at King Shaka Airport

Drive to King Shaka International Airport, and head for the terminal building. Go into the terminal building and take the lift or escalators to the first floor. As you get out of the lift or to the top of the escalator, you will see the Kulula check-in desks on the far left. Next to them are the British Airways Comair check-in desks.

Not much News

The DUR-CPT route is quiet and mostly uneventfuly, which is not surpising given that you can only fly Kulula once a day on it. The airline started operating flights between Durbs & CPT in April 2003. The most interesting incident on the route occurred on the 30th January 2008, when a bird flew into one of the engines of flight MN702, and the plane was flown back to Durban International Airport.

Flight Reviews

2013-07-17 "The route flown was from King Shaka Airport to Cape Town International. I was flying as I had a job interview in Cape Town and decided to stay with some friends for a holiday at the same time. I chose as it ended up being the cheapest airfare as I am a Discovery member and get a discount. I would have chosen any other airline if their airfare was cheaper. I am quite happy to sit in discomfort for 2 hours to save R400. The flight ended up departing earlier and thus arrival time was earlier. The seating arrangements were well laid and it was fairly easy to find my seat. There was however a man with a large cricket bag as his hand luggage that took up the majority of the baggage apartment allocated for our seats, so my bag had to place quite a distance away from where I was sitting. From getting on the aircraft to taking off was a very short 10 minutes. There was in flight food offered which was rather expensive and I ended up just buying a coke. The landing was nice and smooth. Getting off the aircraft was quite easy and collecting of baggage was also easy. The sign posts on where to go in were fairly adequate. I would rate the airline a 5/5 as it was definitely value for money". Patrick Fennemore
