About Us

Mango first launched end October 2006 with the first flight taking to the skies on 15 November 2006. The airline’s 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, the airline has operated with the best on time performance in South African  skies for the past 5 years and continues to have the lowest cost base domestically – allowing for continued affordable fares.

Mango operates a uniform fleet of 8 new generation Boeing 737-800 aircraft with a seating capacity of 186. It's aircraft are maintained by South African Airways Technical.

Mango has also become known as South Africa’s most innovative airline. It is the only African airline to offer on-board WiFi, was the first carrier to retail flights through grocer Shoprite Checkers, the first to offer booking and payment facilities via its mobile apps and remains the only airline in the world to accept store charge cards (Edgars, Jet) as payment online and through its call centre.

Mango’s seat replacement programme will see the airline offer improved legroom with its new, ergonomically efficient seats. Completion of installation is expected by end April 2014.
