More reasons to take off with Mango

FEBRUARY 13, 2018

One of South Africa’s most loved low-cost airlines, Mango, now gives you more reasons to take to the sky by offering you more flights, more often, to your favourite local destinations.

Benediction Zubane, Head of Marketing at Mango Airlines explains, “As of 15 January 2018, Mango welcomed two brand-spanking new Boeing 737-800s to our fleet, and we will be adding another two to our hangers by 15 February. These four new aircraft will offer our Guests 744 additional seats to select from.”

Mango has grown significantly since its inaugural flight in November 2006, and now boasts a fleet of 14 aircraft painted in the trademark orange.  “By methodically adding new planes to our fleet over the years, we have been able to offer South Africans the perfect opportunity to explore all corners of our country. As we grow we remind our Guests of our continued commitment to excellence as we remain true to our brand values: innovation, operational efficiency, excellence in customer service.”

Additional flights on the Mango routes include:

  • Johannesburg to Cape Town increased by 20 additional flights per week
  • Cape Town to Johannesburg increased by 20 additional flights per week
  • Johannesburg to Durban increased by 22 additional flights per week
  • Durban to Johannesburg increased by 22 additional flights per week
  • Lanseria to Durban increased by 2 additional flights per week
  • Durban to Lanseria increased by 2 additional flights per week

Zubane adds that Mango will further increase its flight routes in mid-February.  “With so many more flight options to choose from, coupled with Mango’s easy and varied payment options, your travel experience will be easier and hassle free. As the only airline that currently accepts store cards for bookings, our Guests can pay for flights using their Edgars and Jet Thank U Account Cards.  Your booking can also be paid for at Shoprite, Checkers or Checkers Hyper Money Market kiosk. Because of this we have a retail presence at plus minus 600 outlets, the first low-cost airline to do so,” Zubane proudly adds.

“At Mango we’re known to say: Why not today, because we believe that we give you every reason to fly. Be it a first-time flyer, or one of our regular Guests, we look forward to serving you on-board one of our aircraft. Keep an eye out for our special fares at or download our easy-to-use App, and see how easy it is to book, fly and enjoy, with Mango,” concludes Zubane.
