For 11 years, Mango has had the privilege of journeying with our beloved Guests.  To South Africa’s senior citizens, thank you for supporting us!


Mango - 11 years


Every year, more and more people are getting bitten by the travel bug. For 11 years, Mango has had the privilege of journeying with you, our beloved Guests, as you explore the hidden treasures of our beautiful country.

This year, Mango carried more Guests than we did last year; this is incredible news as more people are coming on board to enjoy our ergonomically efficient seating and increased legroom.

The past 11 years have been filled with much success for Mango; from becoming a multiple award-winning airline – with 50 awards to our name – to increasing our network of destinations, none of this would have been possible without the support of our loyal Guests.

As we celebrate our 11th birthday, we would like to thank each and every one of our Guests for continuing to choose us as their travel partner. Our goal will always be to ensure that our airfares are affordable so that more people can experience the sheer joys of travelling. At Mango, we take pride in making air travel accessible without compromising on our Guests’ comfort and safety.

As we approach the festive season, we encourage you all to take some time to visit parts of the country that you have never seen. From the serene beaches of Port Elizabeth, to the rolling hills of Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa has much to offer. Mango is here to ensure that you make the most of the time you have with your family and friends. Be sure to take advantage of our senior citizens discount and travel to your heart’s content. Maybe even take a trip to the exotic island of Zanzibar.

Not only is it affordable to travel with Mango, but it is also convenient.  Mango is the first airline in Africa to retail through supermarkets. Our partnerships with Pick n Pay, Edgars, Checkers and various other notable brands make it easy for you to book your flights.  As a Mango Guest, you can also use your Edcon Thank U card to pay for your flights.  

As we set our sights on the next 11 years, we hope to continue to enrich the lives of our Guests by connecting you with your loved ones from various parts of the country. The fact that you have continued to choose us for 11 years means the world to us. By supporting us, you have helped us create jobs and contribute to the advancement of the tourism industry. Our success as an airline is a manifestation of the love that you, our Guests, have shown us.

Here’s to 11 more years of conquering South African skies and changing the country one flight at a time.

    Love Mango, except that, over Christmas when many senior citizens would love to visit family, they stop the senior citizen discount.

        Mango has responded as follows:

        Hi Phillip,
        We have no plans currently to fly that route. We appreciate your feedback and will keep you posted should this change.
        Thank you!

        Kind regards

    I had a look at booking tickets from CT to OR Thambo over December and got exactly the same quote with and without my ID number. So it looks like the discount is in fact a scam
