Strike a bargain with their specials. Wonderful deals. Enjoyable flight. Only negative is that they do not check luggage straight through to local final destinion. 1 can actually miss their connecting flight as delays do occur ....

We were so thrilled to find this area airport near our home base of Haartbeespoort, SA. We so wanted to go to Cape Town but did not want to hassle with Tambo International, the most obvious choice to fly to Cape Town. Mango is a no frills, many flights a day, inexpensive two hour hop to the golden city. WE...

Ok so I am the first to admit that mistakes happen - it is how one deals with the mistake that determines the actual outcome. So when my luggage was mislaid on my flight from Joburg to Durban I was not too alarmed - especially since I was reassured (repeatedly) that I would have my luggage delivered to my hotel...

From the time of check in to landing there was nothing positive about this experience. Prevent this airline at all costs, there are lots of hidden costs, the staff have no customer service experience and have no desire to assist.

Flew Mango for the first time in December on route to Zanzibar, the flight attendants were polite and helpful. This was a short flight, we were delayed from Zanzibar side, left 30 minutes late, but the pilot made up the time and we still arrived back home in Jhb on time. Was a pleasant flight there and back. Only disadvantage...

I am sorry - But I have always found the Check in staff at Mango to be rather arrogant and actually rude in their approach and I fly with many airlines and often. Especially one specific lady at Bloemfontein airport and I have heard many other folk state the exact same

Used the flight to and fro Cape Town. Prices are quite reasonable. The flight was right on time. Flight attendants were quite friendly. Has quite good leg room. For the price, I think Mango is a very reasonable airline!

booked on line. This was effortless. Check in was excellent. Both flights were good. Only downside, seats are too close to each other, so it's a fair squeeze.Refreshments variety was good but limited. Happy to recommend.

We used Mango airlines to travel to Zanzibar for a week holiday. The flight was on time and the check-in was smooth. However on board there was no entertainment (I know flight is only 4hours long but still...) second problem they don’t accept any foreign currencies or credit card except SA Rand. I had only euros, dollars with me so...
