Mango Airlines Reviews-MangoAs we all know, the mango is a fleshy yellowish-red tropical fruit. However, we’ll be talking about a different mango in this review. A low-cost airline was named after this fruit and it was established in 2006 with bookings going on sale at midnight on the same date. The 10 all-Boeing fleet of Mango Airlines cater services to 6 destinations in South Africa and 1 international route to Tanzania. The South African budget airline is 100% owned by South African Airways. This year, Mango Airlines will be joining Star Alliance as a Connecting Partner.

  1. Cheapest fare of all domestic carriers and best carrier I have experienced on this route. Friendly and helpful staff at check in and on the flight plane modern and clean. Flights on time and return to CPT arrived 15 minutes early. If you haven’t flown Mango before give them a try.
