Those bright orange planes of Mango Airlines are the ruler of the budget carrier roost when it comes to flights to Cape Town. The airline offers by far the most routes to the Mother City. There are regular Mango Airlines flights to Cape Town International Airport (CPT) from Johannesburg (JNB & HLA), Bloemfontein (BFN), Port Elizabeth and Durban King Shaka International Airport (DUR). This compares to Kulula, which operates to CPT from only Lanseria, OR Tambo & Durban (only 1 flight a day from DUR to CPT).
A holiday in Cape Town that starts well, ends well. Mango Cape Town flights are rated 4.8/5 based on 6 customer reviews

The cabin crew were friendly & courteous & made me feel comfortable from the time I stepped onto the plane till I landed at Cape Town & I would recommend Mango Airlines as an airline of choice. Keep up the great service. Yoginee Chetty
Published on 2014-03-01 Rating 4/ 5: In January this year I took my first flight to Cape Town. As a Dad I was very excited to visit my eldest daughter who works in Cape Town. I went on line and booked 2 return tickets from Durban to Cape Town. The online booking procedure was very user friendly and the entire process was hassle free. I found it very easy to use and pay with my credit card. Our return flight was scheduled for 9 Jan 2014 (JE 352) - departure at 18H00. An hour before the flight we received an SMS to inform us that the flight would be delayed by an hour. The online check-in process ensured that I did not have to wait in long queue's at the airport. We delayed our departure to the airport by an hour. Upon arrival at the airport my wife and I were pleasantly surprised when the ground staff presented us with a food voucher for R50 each. While having something to eat and drink we were informed that the flight had been further delayed. Eventually. Mango re-routed an aircraft from Johannesburg to fly us to Durban. Once on board the aircraft the cabin crew apologised profusely for the flight delay. Upon landing in Durban the Captain once again apologised for the delay in the flight. We were satisfied with the apology and the tone and mannerism of the crew. Much to our surprise 4 days later we received 2 discount vouchers from Mango which was transferable and which was valid for 3 months. Mango was not obliged to do this, they went over and above the call of duty. We were overjoyed, this meant that father and daughter could be re-united yet again. My daughter arrives on Saturday. Thank you Mango. Indran Padayachee
Published on 2014-01-29 Rating 5/ 5: My flight experience at the end of October 2013 to Cape Town went very well. I was never afraid of flying, maybe because my Dad were also a pilot, but died 50 years ago in a small airplane crash. The people next to me & I talked the whole flight and before we know we land at the Cape Town Airport with big smile. The crew were very friendly & I can remember that I told the people that this pilot flew very good. I will definitely fly Mango again. Can’t wait. Marita De Lange
Published on 2014-01-14 Rating 5/ 5: OUR TRIP TO CAPE TOWN WITH MANGO AIRLINES : It's 5 am in the morning. What a promising, splendid day. Tranquil, serene, calm. Just what one needs. I am enjoying the refreshing, cool, soothing Cape Town breeze filtering through the curtains in my hotel room. I am at complete rest and peace; this made possible through Mango Airline's affordable prices and a trouble free flight. As I walk towards the window I am awestruck at what meets my eye; it's none other than the magnificent, majestic, imposing, inspiring Table Mountain; staring at me in all its glory. A trip to the top is definitely on our itinerary, without a doubt. Once on board the airline, we not only feel completely relaxed but we also feel safe as we know what to expect: superb service which encapsulates an aircraft which has undergone stringent quality mechanical checks - it is clean, neat and fresh; highly qualified, confident, seasoned pilots who keep us well informed of the weather conditions and other relevant information; friendly hostesses with infectious smiles and warm greetings. Thus the flight is absolutely pleasant and of course without any threatening incidents. The landing is smooth, which is indicative of the pilots flying expertise and supreme training. We reach our destination well before scheduled time. WOW! MANGO AIRLINES ALWAYS EXCEEDING OUR EXPECTATIONS. Wait! There's more. The fact that a trouble free journey guarantees a start to a trouble free, interesting holiday which is filled with fun, laughter, good times, good encounters and yeah - good food. It's time to let my hair down and forget about the office woes. Armed with my camera its Click! Click! Click! as I capture a holiday that is loaded with treasured memories made at the hustle and bustle at Camps Bay with its beautiful beaches, Grand West Casino as I try my hand at poker; the indulgence of a facial and hot stone massage at The Wembley MediSpa; the long scenic drive to Gordons Bay; Robin Island and the memories it holds; Canal Walk and the Waterfront famous for its food courts and unforgettable shopping experience. Well! That's it. Ho! Ho! Ho! how could I have forgotten our visit to the fish market - yes, undeterred by the strong smell of fish, our purchase of fresh snoek is made for friends and family. WOW! WHAT A HOLIDAY! Everything according plan. A holiday that starts well ends well. Ad hew Cape Town. Its' homeward bound. Gauteng! Here we come come, once again via our favourite, trusted and loyal travelling companion - MANGO AIRLINES. THANK YOU MANGO AIRLINES for making the start and end of our holiday a pleasurable and fabulous one. THE PURPLE WILL RULE Mrs Vicky Pillay
Published on 2013-11-02 Rating 5/ 5 : I had to go to Cape Town and accidentally bought my tickets to fly by Mango airline. I did not pay attention initially to a cabin and staff, but all of a sudden I noticed new comfortable chairs (and there is enough room for legs too!). Stewardesses were great, snacks and drinks too. There was no turbulence and we even arrived earlier then scheduled. What else is good-you can buy internet bundles during the flight and keep in touch with your friends. I still love Kulula but I love Mango too now and going to fly again! Great prices to fly more often. Thanks, it was a pleasant surprise! Lana

: My husband and I met in 2007, yet then we didn't know we were meant to be. He is from Cape Town and I am all the way from the little town called Potchefstroom. Our friendship started with my twin sister going overseas for work, as an aupair in the Nederlands. It was the first time for us sisters to be such a great distance apart, but thanks to airplanes the distance was only a ticket apart! Hendre was working in London when he met my sister on Myspace, and that's when I met him and became friends, within the two week visit in the Netherlands on my sister's Skype! A year later we made contact again and he asked me if I could be his date to his brother's wedding! Thanks again to a flight special I could afford to go visit him in CT and attend his brother's wedding! Yet it was at this little vacation I was bound to find out that this friendship was turning into something splendid. The night before I had to catch my plane back, he told me these words I'd never forget; I know you are my wife. Tears later, and the rest was history, we left it there and in the Lord's hands and off to the airport the next morning! Very sad I sat in the plane trying to forget that there was going to be more than a 1000km's between us when Mango, once again put a smile on my face. The flight attendant woke me up and asked me to take my hand luggage and handbag to the front… very surprised but curious to find out what he meant I I followed with only my handbag, just incase he was going to ask me to jump - I didn't want to be dropping like a rock (just joking). It turned out as a personal invite as the pilots requested him to go fetch me to join them in the cockpit! WOW that was the most wonderful flight experience ever! They were so nice! We had such an awesome chat while the autopilot had to do the job, so we arrived at OR Tambo 30min before schedule! Back at my home town time passed, things took a TURN between Hendre and I, we dated other people but still kept contact, turned out to be best friends, motivating and inspiring one another. Till the one day both the girl he was dating and the guy I was dating randomly ended the relationships and Hendre decided to come visit me! He officially asked me to be his girl and the FLYING started! In 2 years time I have gained more air miles than you could imagine a student's pocket could afford- BUT it was all thanks to SPECIALS! Time passed and he flew all the way with his last cents and with an engagement ring in his pocket and asked me to get married. Eventually Hendre moved to Potchefstroom as he got job transferred! After many struggles we were planning our wedding! We had to get my entire family to go down to CT, because of a little white beautiful church that stole my heart in Franschhoek! Again with a Mango Special email and a very quick response we managed to book 2 return tickets for my parents that were at the time hospitalized and very ill. We were paying for the entire wedding so after we bought their tickets we hadn't even money to buy peak season tickets for us to get to our own wedding! So the first week of December 2011 we went to Checkers, with a prayer and there it was, a blessing again, we bought 3x R560 tickets at the counter there and then for us and Hendre's brother that was going to marry us! We arrived in CT and started to finalize décor and catering (which we ended up doing ourselves) 2 weeks before the wedding. Wednesday before the wedding me a stressed out bride got the best phone call, it was my mom and dad telling me what a pleasant flight they had, and going on about how much my dad (who hated traveling) enjoyed the flight and how well they helped him assisting with his oxygen machine that he had to fly with. We got married on the 31st December 2011 on New Years Day, with loved ones, family and friends.
Everyone could share in our special day, and if it wasn't for SA airlines specially Mango airlines, this story wouldn't have had such a beautiful ending. The most special part that I am still most grateful for is the fact that my father could have been there, for he passed away 40 days after our wedding. So, to conclude my letter I would love to end it with our special rating 10 out of 5!
Yolande and Hendre Kruger.
(PS. We have attached some photos we kept as memory of our wonderful flight back home a few days before our honeymoon ended also at checkers in peak season for least than R700 each. How awesome was this!)
There are also Kulula flights to Cape Town, providing the only other competition in the form of a low cost carrier on airline routes to Cape Town. However, FlySafair, 1time, Skywise Airline and fastjet are all knocking on the door to compete.
