kulula.com and Air France have announced a codeshare partnership which will see the major carrier add its code to kulula.com’s domestic route network, allowing customers to connect seamlessly to and from Cape Town, Durban, George and East London, and enjoy the benefits of purchasing a single Air France ticket, with the added convenience of one-stop check-in and baggage transfer.
Additionally, premium Air France customers will have access to the award winning SLOW lounges, situated in the domestic terminals at OR Tambo International (Johannesburg), Cape Town International, and Durban International airports. Air France and kulula.com have also confirmed that discussions are underway to include the Flying Blue Frequent Flyer Programme in the new partnership, which would allow members of the programme to accrue and redeem miles on kulula.com codeshare flights.
Erik Venter, Comair’s CEO remarked, “We are delighted to be adding Air France as a key airline partner and will continue to work with them to explore opportunities to expand on our partnership. We look forward to welcoming their customers on board our flights.”
The codeshare partnership with Air France-KLM marks kulula.com’s second with a SkyTeam Alliance member, following its codeshare agreement with Kenya Airways.
