Kulula adds to its fleet

Kulula's has launched a new fleet of Boeing 737-800s. The low-cost airline has recently taken a decision to lease these new planes (with an average age of five years) as a cost-saving measure, putting the airline's fleet at eight aircraft.

Kulula says this decision will ensure a reduction in overall running costs by saving two million litres of fuel per aircraft per year. The newer planes also require significantly less maintenance, allowing for higher utilisation and lower operating costs. The cabins in the new planes are more luxurious thanks to the ergonomically-designed luggage holds, the LED mood lighting and comfortable seating. Boeing has also worked to improve cabin noise, reducing the drone of the engines.
