About the airline
Mango Airlines is a cost airline founded in 2006. As a subsidiary of South African Airways, it operates scheduled domestic services on a no-frills, cheap fare basis. The airline’s tongue in cheek advertising and cheap flight prices has since made it a well-loved household brand among travelling South Africans. It is also in direct competition with the likes of low cost carriers such as Kulula.com. FlySafair and Comair.
The airline is headquartered at Johannesburg’s OR Tambo International Airport, with its main hub situated at the same airport. By 2014 the airline recorded a net profit of R39.1m after tax.
As one would expect with any low cost airline, a standard Mango flight does not include complimentary food or refreshments. These items can, however, be purchased in flight. Entertainment aboard Mango comes in the form of Mango TV and the airline magazine, Mango Juice. The airline, which has benefitted from its position as SAA subsidiary for some years, has recently been facing increasing competition from a number of new budget airlines entering the South African domestic aviation industry.
Air travellers can presently earn SAA Voyager Miles flying Mango, but are not yet able to earn SAA miles flying with Mango. Additional benefits of SAA Voyager such as extra baggage, class upgrades and lounge access benefits are not applicable when flying Mango.
