South Africans have been asked by Kulula-founder Gidon Novick ‘to put their creativity to the test’ and suggest a name for the new South African airline being launched by Gidon in 2020.

The airline is a partnership between Novick and Global Aviation.  The airline’s first flight between Johannesburg and Cape Town is planned for December 2020.

“The pandemic has created a unique opportunity to start an airline that is not only dramatically more efficient but also inventive and creative by tapping into the unique talent that our country offers,” said Novick.

With inspiration from Uber Novick said: “Similar to the way Uber has transformed the point-to-point mobility, there is a huge opportunity for the airline industry to rethink its relationship with passengers and be more ‘customer obsessed’.

Novick has invited all South Africans to name the new carrier and said he is looking for a name that is ‘unique, aspirational, and memorable and cool.’
