KLM Royal Dutch Airlines and local flight operators kulula.com have entered into an agreement that will allow travelers to purchase a single KLM ticket, with the added convenience of a one-stop check-in and baggage transfer.

The announcement, that kulula.com entered into a codeshare agreement with KLM was made today and will come into effect from 29 May 2018.

Under this partnership, KLM will add its KL 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 KLM ticket with the convenience of one-stop check-in and baggage transfer.

In addition to the above benefits, in the future, premium KLM customers will have access to the Comair’s award winning SLOW lounges conveniently situated in the domestic terminals at OR Tambo International, Cape Town International, King Shaka International and the newest addition the SLOW XS lounge at Lanseria International airport.
