Best Domestic Airline winner, kulula.com is on the innovation trail again.
kulula.com is South Africa’s largest revenue generating website with 65% of all bookings done online.
“kulula.com has always been innovative and always looking for ways to make the lives of our superheroes easier. We are very excited to announce that our superheroes will now be able to make all their booking changes online, on their own, and more importantly these changes can be done out of office hours in the comfort of their own homes,” says executive manager, commercial Gidon Novick.
kulula.com are the first airline in the world to offer this type of service to its customers. By using the current online technology called AirKiosk Sytems, from a US-based company, it has allowed kulula.com to take airline bookings onto a new level.
If passengers are not computer literate, they can contact the call centre to make booking changes. The cost of changing bookings is R75 online or R100 through the call centre plus the difference between the old and new fare.
This new on-line service means that kulula.com passengers can change their bookings at home using their computer.
” This is the first of many new innovations and announcements that kulula.com are planning for the year. Watch this space,” concludes Novick.
