Requesting assistance at the airport


Special Assistance

A wheelchair can be provided in the case where the passenger can’t ascend/descend steps but can stand and manoeuvre themselves within the cabin.
We also offer a Passenger Aid Unit (PAU) service for all paraplegic and quadriplegic fans who have their own wheelchairs. Paraplegic and quadriplegics who are completely immobile will need to provide their own body straps. Should you need any assistance with eating or visiting the rest room, you will need to travel with a self-supplied able-bodied assistant aged 16 years or older. Note that we are unable to accept passengers confined to stretchers.


For safety reasons, wheelchair assistance will only be available from the kulula.com check-in counters to the aircraft as well as from the aircraft to the arrival hall upon landing, and not outside the airport building. Passengers may then be welcomed by friends or family at the drop-and-go.

Important: Wheelchair passengers must report to check-in 90 minutes prior to departure on domestic flights and 3 hrs prior to departure on international flights.

Customers taking their own personal electric wheelchair are permitted wet or dry battery cells and will need to follow the following procedures:

  • Notify our Contact Centre, 48 hours prior to departure that a self-supplied electric wheelchair will be used.
  • Customers must ensure there is no battery leakage.
  • Battery terminals must be disconnected and isolated.
  • Batteries must be clearly labelled as “wet” or “dry” based accumulators.
  • Spare and/or removable batteries must be checked in as luggage.
  • Subject to capacity constraints, passengers must check-in their own wheelchairs and batteries.


Meet and Assist

Our meet-and-assist is available to elderly travellers who does not require wheelchair assistance. Once you’ve checked in, we will take you to the designated waiting area. From there, you'll be escorted to the aircraft. Upon arrival, we’ll assist you to your welcoming party at drop-and-go.

There is no service available for unaccompanied minors on kulula.com flights. Infants and Children must be accompanied by an adult aged 16 years or older.


Incapacitated Passengers Handling Form

In some cases a passenger might require an INCAD form depending on their condition and a medical certificate to confirm that they are fit to travel
