Kulula "Going into Africa":Flying into Tanzania



kulula.com has joined forces with Comair(Comair is the operator of British Airways in South Africa), who has acquired the rights to fly 5 weekly return flights to the Tanzanian capital, Dar es Salaam departing from the Oliver Tambo International Airport Johannesburg.

British Airways will be operating the new route and the flights will also be integrated and sold through the kulula.com distribution network.Online booking began yesterday 4th November 2010 tickets will be available for travel one way between 4 November 2010 – 31st March 2011 or "until the seats sell out" with a promotional fare 0f R999 one way.

The flights will be operated by British Airways and check-in opens 2 hours before departure and close sharply 45 minutes before your flight.None of the kulula ancillary products such as excess baggage are available for this new route and because the flight is operated by British Airways passengers cannot part pay using their kulula moolah(points from kulula's Jetsetter loyalty program) 

The introduction of additional flights to Dar es Salaam will bring a much needed alternative service and competitive pricing to a market that is currently only serviced by one airline operator.South African Airways currently enjoys a virtual monopoly with three and half hour non stop flights from Dar es Salaam(DAR) to Johannesburg(JNB).

The route is also serviced by Kenya Airways(via Nairobi),a flight that takes 15 hours,Ethiopian Airlines(via Addis Ababa taking over 10 hours and also via Maputo) ,by Emirates via Dubai stopover-Cape Town-Joburg(by SAA),by British Airways (nonstop) and via Durban
