Very good rates sometimes, it would be nice if the airline can start a points system, the more you fly the points you earn for discounted rates

Check in for the International flight also smooth and friendly. We booked towards the rear and although the flight was full, were reasonably comfortable. On the return from Zanzibar, the check in staff booked us emergency exit seats- my husband is 1.95m tall - she used her initiative, which we appreciated. Flight was smooth and arrived ahead of time.

Mango was my final connecting flight home from Phuket. Five minutes before landing, the pilot announced that the could not land in Durban due to a technical problem, the maintenance on the aircraft is done in Jhb. We flew back. Were transferred to another aircraft, given free snacks and landed safety in Durban. Well done Mango.

Mango airlines is the only airline I fly with, for many reasons. They have great fare pricing. Flights on schedule. Allows more than one piece of checked in luggage. Staff friendly and efficient.

Mango is a budget domestic airlines - you would think that the experience wouldn't be that great, but they are a true representation of what value for money is. On this specific trip we flew with them twice [from Cape Town International to O.R. Tambo International and back] and we were very happy with our experience. The boarding was quick,...
