Mango first launched end October 2006 with our first flight taking to the skies on 15 November 2006.
Our launch marked one of the largest e-commerce events at the time with more than 10 000 flight requests clocked per minute during the first two days following its launch.
Benchmarked against international best practice in the low cost carrier sectors, we have operated with the best on-time performance in South African skies for the past 6 years and continue to have the lowest cost base domestically – allowing for continued affordable fares. We operate a fleet of new generation Boeing 737-800 aircraft with a seating capacity of 186. Our aircraft are maintained by South African Airways Techinical.
We’re known as South Africa’s most innovative airline. We are the only African airline to offer on-board Wi-Fi, we’re the first carrier to retail flights through grocer Shoprite Checkers, the first to offer booking and payment facilities via our mobile app and we remain the only airline in the world to accept store charge cards (Edgars/Jet) as payment online and through our call centre.
Mango constantly challenges itself to push the envelope beyond the boundaries of convention; continually developing new products and technologies with a continual focus on service excellence.
