Kulula vs Mango

Kulula OR Tambo to Cape Town

OR Tambo to Cape Town is where it all began - the first flight route launched by Kulula in August 2001, and the beginning of the budget carrier era for South Africa (although at that stage OR Tambo was known as Johannesburg International Airport). It was more than two year later, after Glenn Orsmond resigned from Comair (who run the Kulula and British Airways brands in South Africa) as their finanical director and set up 1time Airline, that South Africa saw its 2nd low cost carrier take to the skies (on the 26th Feb 2004 1time's first flight was also from OR Tambo to Cape Town).

Kulula OR Tambo to Cape Town flights (JNB-CPT) are scheduled to take 2 hours and 10 minutes to cover the 1271km, making it the fastest airline in South Africa on the route (Mango & SAA are scheduled to take 2 hours and 15 minutes on a flight from JNB to CPT). The reason for the discrepancy is a debate in progress, with 2 main arguments put forward : (1) Mango pilots throttle back to save fuel, and (2) Mango wants to look good in their on-time statistics so pads the scheduled flight time.

In addition to airlines 47 flights a week from JNB to CPT, it also sells numerous British Airways Comair flights on the route, and there are also Kulula flights from Lanseria to Cape Town.

Kulula's JNB-CPT flights are in their signature Boeing 737-800 planes. So expect a modern medium-sized jet experience.

The flight schedule is as follows - flights numbers (departure time):

  • On Sundays: MN117 (08h10), MN133 (09h00), MN135 (10h50), MN127 (14h25), MN131 (18h05) & MN137 (19h45).
