The low cost Mango Airlines is a South African carrier belonging to the association of South African Airways and immediately next to South African Express, serves as a regional carrier between Johannesburg and other cities located in South Africa. The headquarters of Mango Airlines is the airport in Johannesburg, from where all planes depart in such directions as: Cape Town, Durban, Bloemfontein. Low cost Mango Airlines were established in 2006 at the end of October, and the first Mango cheap flights took place in November. The IATA code is JE. The carrier offers cheap air tickets in local directions, thus relieving the main South Africa airline – SAA (South African Airways), flying to many destinations, also intercontinental.
Importantly, low cost Mango Airlines offer the possibility of carrying both hold and checked baggage. Thanks to this you can bring more than just items that fit into a small suitcase. Hold baggage may have the dimensions: 56 cm x 36 cm x 23 cm and weigh up to 7 kg. In terms of checked suitcases, you can bring baggage up to 20 kg. Larger baggage values than those indicated by Mango will result in an overpayment, according to the current price list. It is worth signing all your suitcases and marking them in a characteristic manner, to ensure it will be much easier to recognise your baggage upon arrival. Interestingly, each passenger, apart from the typical checked baggage hidden in the overhead hold, can bring a bag and a coat. Keep in mind that you can carry only 100 ml of liquids and cosmetics in your hold baggage.
Flying a cheap flight with Mango Airlines, you can book tickets in the standard class, or economic. In this case, the air ticket price includes only the transit, without additional facilities. Nevertheless, it is a sufficient standard for many, as Mango offers several-hour-long flights as a local South African carrier. Hence, the journey is not demanding nor tiring. Those who want to fly in a higher standard can choose a business class trip with Mango Airlines which has been available since 2007. Passengers using these facilities have the opportunity to relax in the VIP room in the price of the flight, as well as the possibility of taking extra luggage up to 32 kg, without the need for additional payment.
Mango, like many low cost carriers, offers the possibility of using online check-in. This allows, above all, for later arrival at the airport. Because you receive the boarding pass online, all you need to do is enter your details and those contained on the air ticket and proceed according with the form. Online check-in can be done from 24 to 2 hours before the flight. If you don’t have checked-in baggage, go straight to the plane, but if you have additional suitcases, you must register them before you go on board. This is a great convenience that has been available in the services of the low cost airlines for many years.
Low cost Mango Airlines includes a team of fuel-efficient Boeing 737-800 aircrafts. The count of aircrafts changes every year, so it is impossible to indicate an unambiguous number. Mango aircrafts are from the latest generation and have the capacity to take as many as 186 passengers; they are also extremely safe and reliable. Importantly, all seats on the plane can be booked in advance. If passengers do not decide to book seats faster, they will be assigned seats upon arrival at the airport.
The main airport of Mango, a South African Airways airline, is Johannesburg. The airport is located at a short distance from the city centre. Travelers can easily access the centre or hotel directly by public transport or rented car. There are many cafes and restaurants at the airport, so you can dine or drink coffee before the flight. On top of that, there are also shops and a duty-free zone. Importantly, there is also a five-star Transit Hotel available.
Mango Airlines do not offer meals on board in the ticket price, this facility is available only in business class. However, you can easily buy snacks and drinks for your money. The planes are equipped with sockets for charging electronic equipment, as well as a music player.
