NOTE: Please do not confuse Comair Limited with the Comair which was once a subsidiary airline of Delta Air Lines and had ceased operations on September 29, 2012. In this review, we are talking about Comair of South Africa.
You might be wondering what “Comair” means. Comair was initially founded by the Novick and Moritz families in December 1943 as Commercial Air Services. The airline started using Fairchild aircraft for scheduled services from Johannesburg. In 1961, under the management of Donald Novick, Comair operated with 2 Douglas aircraft and also expanded its fleet to jet aircraft.
Now, Comair operates scheduled and domestic services in South Africa as a British Airways franchisee and also as a low-cost carrier under its own Kulula brand. Comair Limited is headquartered at OR Tambo International Airport and serves as an affiliate member of the Oneworld airline alliance. The airline now has a growing fleet 15 Boeing and even caters international routes to Mauritius, Namibia, Saint Helena, Ascension, Tristan da Cunha, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.
Flying with Comair
Through acquisition, expansion, and partnership, Comair Travel offers South Africa’s largest and broadest digital travel distribution network. It provides a vehicle that delivers travel to the retail and wholesale markets, using the most advanced technology available.
Since the airline is flying under the brand of British Airways and Kulula, we can’t give a definite description on the inflight cabin services of Comair. The best thing we can do is to refer to these following links:

Official Website and Mobile App
Comair’s official website is not modernized and is a bit more like an official site of a business company. As noticeable, other airlines will normally have the options to book and manage flights on its front page, but not with Comair. The South African-based airline provides information about the company, their investor relations, media room, careers, and corporate responsibility.
Scrolling down, it shows the different partner brands and other airline information such as their services and policies. To learn more about each of these functionalities, just click on the icon at the top right which says “Navigate” and a list of options and services will show in a column.
Unfortunately, Comair does not yet have an Android or an iOS application, so it means a travel app was not yet created for a mobile version of the services offered online.
Comair Reviews of Customers
We were able to find Comair reviews online on Skytrax. Good news, they’re dated this year and bad news, they garnered only an overall 5/10 rating from 31 Comair reviews. According to passengers, the airline was one of the few air carriers they enjoyed flying with. The reviewer even said they had an excellent flight overall and the landing was smooth. On a positive note, even if Comair only got an average rating overall, at least the most recent reviews are all positive. To see more of these Comair reviews, click here.
