Comair re-opens bookings

Comair announces it will be taking bookings for Kulula as the festive season approaches.

Comair announced that it would begin taking new bookings from 9 November for Kulula ahead of its planned take-off on 1 December. 

Customers who booked tickets before Comair was placed in business rescue on 5 May will be able to use the value of their tickets through the Comair Travel Bank for future travel on Comair from mid-January onwards.

The re-introduction of Kulula flights on the domestic network is the first phase of Comair’s ramp-up to full operations over the next few months. British Airways domestic and regional flights will re-open soon, as will Kulula flights from Lanseria.

Comair Rescue Consortium representative Glenn Orsmond said that Comair will initially operate a fleet of 15 aircraft across both airline brands, gradually increasing as the remainder of the fleet returns to service over the next few months.

“This is an important moment for Comair, for all the employees who have been so patient and supportive through the business rescue process, for our customers, the flying public and the country. A strong, competitive airline sector benefits everyone and we’re looking forward to welcoming our first customers on board and gradually restoring our schedule and network,” said Glenn.
