Reviews

Full timekeeping details : Kulula's DUR to OR Tambo flights are 65 minutes, whilst DUR to Lanseria is 70 minutes (so, if you want the very quickest flight, hop on the one to Tambo). Although landing at OR Tambo leaves you with having to face the e-Tolls, which could be dodged from Lanseria. So if you paid R700 Rand for your flight, you're burning R10 a minute. At the end of the flight wait for the announcement from Kulula that they "hope you enjoyed your flight just as much as we enjoyed taking you for a ride!"

Kulula Durban to Johannesburg

You're in luck! Durban to Johannesburg is the cheapest flight route in South Africa, and Kulula is often cheapest. And to book a cheap flight - let your fingers do the walking on the keyboard, and punch your details into the flight bookings tool on the left, and wallah...out will pop details of the cheapest airline.

Kulula flights from Durban to JHB are rated 4/5 after 2 flight reviews.

Kulula Airlines is the heavyweight champ of the Durban to Johannesburg flight route, with it being the only airline operating flights from King Shaka to both Lanseria as well as OR Tambo International Airport (there are Mango Airlines flights from Cape Town to Lanseria International Airport, but not from Durbs...yet).

The airline operates its wacky green-painted signature Boeing 737-800s on the route, so you'll get a medium-sized jet experience - all 70 minutes of it! Don't worry when you see the instructions on the side of plane indicating where things go - the pilots are on top of things :)

Still stuck? Don't be shy - ask for Help - we'll be nice, I promise. In fact, our supremely helpful travel agents are itching to show you the best flight deal.

Kulula Let me in the Cockpit

6 April 2014. Rating 5/5. "I was flying from Durban to OR Tambo.  The flight was perfect and so much fun. The staff were so cool and friendly. I even got pics in the cockpit. I work for a casino. So my friends and I wanted to go visit other casinos. At that time it was my 1st time flying so a part of me was scared.  My trip the last time was 5 days, and we did everything there is to do at Monte Casino, then Goldreef and other casinos. There was no part of that trip I can say was bad." Isaac Michael

Flight Reviews

28 July 2013. Rating 3/5. "My last flight was a last minute booking made by my husband, after an acquaintance had let me down for a planned trip with up to Johannesburg from Durban dividing road costs equally. My great Aunt had passed away that Monday and the memorial was due to be held the Thursday. This acquaintance had a competition to attend over the same time, so we planned to leave the Wednesday and return together Saturday. As it turns out she BBMed me the morning of our planned departure with complications that may well lead to me having to find my own way to Gauteng. So leaving very little time to make cost effective and travel friendly arrangements, my husband made a return booking on line with Kulula. Had enough notice been given I would have been able to take a bus up, which although longer and at risk of break down; would have only cost R580 return. Anyways, I'm not 100's sure of the cost that my husband had to pay - but from the costings I had made earlier that week flights were no less that R1700 rounded return. I threw together my last minute packing and raced off to the airport approximately 45km's from our home to make my check in time. My check in was fast and efficient with the help of a ground crew member at the self help touch screen and the fact I only had hand luggage. I flew British Airways on route to Johannesburg, the experience always an hour delight - especially given this flight gave me the window seat and two more vacant seats to stretch out on. The cabin crew served the passengers a cheese or chicken choice sarmie and drink of choice - and by the time we had finished our last bite we were given the seat belt light to prepare for descent. The flight down was a tad nauseating, with having just finished my chicken wholewheat roll and orange juice - we hit some pretty hair raising and prayer stiring turbulance. Touch down, given the challenges the pilot had to endure, was a bit of a relief! We were ushered out with ease and all the passengers went there own way. My return flight was with Kulula. This time I had been given gifts and so had to check in my luggage, and at the same time requested a window seat - the perks of arriving early for check in! Once aboard I realized someone had taken my seat. At first annoyed, then thinking through the fact that this may just be this passenger's first experience aboard an aeroplane and that I would be happy to sit in her chair once asking her for her ticket so that I wouldn't have to be moved by someone else's seat mistakenly taken. Just before lockdown and take off I managed to find a quick gab to 'squeeze a kidney', thankfully near the loo and not far from my hand luggage were three open seats - so I enjoyed my window view, cabin crew humour - purchased a light snack and coffee and took time to reflect and be grateful. The flight home was pleasant and smooth and landing much the same. It was only the disembarking that was delayed as all the passengers stood eagerly waiting for the stairs to allow us of the aircraft. For an overall rating - I would have to give BA for the 'free' refreshments a 4, obviously the turbulence wasn't their fault and having 3 seats to myself a double bonus. Kulula would be a 3, purely for the space - humour and friendly cabin crew". Samantha Perfect

Competitors

The only other budget airline option is Mango from Durban to Johannesburg (and only to OR Tambo, not to Lanseria Airport). Because of the greater competition on the DUR-JNB route, the airfares are usually lower (our research indicates this).
