The new flag carrier was established in 2006 following the collapse and bankruptcy of the country’s first national carrier Cameroon Airlines (CAMAIR).

The first route was from Douala to Paris (CDG) and domestically from Douala to Yaounde.

B737 ZS-ZWP KULULA, originally uploaded by shanairpic.

Kulula (kulula.com) (Johannesburg) is certainly not your average (boring) airline. The company has a sense of humor and tries to make flying fun and colorful. The airline has had a long history of colorful logojets. The latest is this ex-Axis Airways Boeing 737-86N now registered ZS-ZWP (msn 28612, ex OK-PIK) which was rolled out at Shannon on January 18 in this all green livery. The small white inscriptions and arrows details the various parts of the aircraft and also the components of the aircraft, hence the title “flying 101”.
