Under this partnership, Air France will add its AF code to kulula.com's domestic route network allowing customers to seamlessly connect to and from Cape Town, Durban, George and East London and enjoy the benefits of purchasing a single Air France ticket with the convenience of one-stop check-in and baggage transfer.
In addition to the above benefits, in the future, premium Air France customers will have access to the award winning SLOW lounges conveniently situated in the domestic terminals at OR Tambo International, Cape Town International and King Shaka International airports.
Erik Venter, Comair's chief executive officer says "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".
"We are confident that our customers will benefit from the partnership, providing them with more convenient booking and travel options within South Africa. We are excited to be working with kulula.com and look forward to further expanding our relationship," said Frank Legre, senior vice president Africa at AIR FRANCE KLM.
Air France and kulula.com further confirmed that discussions were underway to include the Flying Blue Frequent Flyer Programme which would allow members of the programme to accrue and redeem miles on the code share flights.
