World’s Funniest Airline

Kulula is a low-cost South African airline, with it’s head office in Johannesburg, that doesn’t take itself too seriously. It’s a real shame that Kulula doesn’t fly internationally, they deserve some support if only for their humour, very typically South African (never met a South African I didn’t like). There’s another page of Kulula Tannoy Announcements.
