Mango is Africa's Best Low Cost Airline
Well done to Mango Airlines on being named the Best Low-Cost Airline in Africa. With reviews like this one from Jackie Webber, it is no wonder they were named number 1 in Africa: "Very happy with Mango airlines - no problems, no complaints. Flight was on time - no delays. Will fly Mango anytime."

  • Kulula Pilot keeps a cool Head amid Turbulence
  • Jene du Plessis wrote to us to congratulate a Kulula Airlines pilot on doing a great job: "My last flight on Kulula was quite scary as the plane experienced some turbulence and was very unstable just prior to landing, but the skilled pilot took control and landed the plane skilfully! I would rate it a five as I absolutely love the thrill of experiencing turbulence! It made for a more exciting flight."
