Several days later and there is still no sign of flight MH370, which lost contact on Saturday. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and loved ones of the souls on board.

Mango Happy Day Sale to April

After 4 weeks of starting on Wednesdays, it looks like we're back to Tuesdays for Mango Happy Day Sales. This one starts at 9am today, the 11th March 2014, running until 9pm on the 12th March 2014 - a 36 hour sale.

For the first time in ages all of the airfares are the same as in last week's happy day sale. This is encouraging to see, as flight prices have been on the rise as a result of the depreciation of the Rand. Hopefully this signals a steadying of airfares at current levels.

Cheapest 1-way airfares

Here's the best flight prices in the sale. *Note that these prices were only available on a very limited number of dates, and may have changed (both because the limited number of seats on sale run out, or because we made a mistake - doesn't happen often and hasn't occured for a while, but we'll own up to the fact that it does happen occasionally).

As has become the norm this year in the Happy Day sales, you can also pay in the currency of South African Airways Voyager Miles. An opportunity to use those Voyager miles before they expire on the 31st March 2014. This is something we predicted would become rather popular this year.
