Mango Lanseria Flights

There have been Mango Airlines flights between Lanseria and Cape Town since 1 June 2011, when the airline broke Kulula's monopoly over the airport. However, up until now there have been no Mango Lanseria to Durban flights. This is about to change as Mango starts Lanseria to Durban flights on the 15th of October 2015.

The Cape Town to Lanseria flight route has been the scene of an intense price war between Kulula and Mango Airlines, with the fares most of the time being lower than that on the Cape Town to OR Tambo International, flight route.

Since FlySafair have forced prices down on all the routes they fly, other low cost carriers have been scrambling for routes which they can keep to themselves.

Flight reviews

This was our second review of the route. Unlike our first flight, the plane was fairly empty, the queue at check-in was also non-existent, and the cherry on the cake was when the plane took off half an hour early! It really does pay to fly at midday (when flights are emptier & cheaper), our scheduled departure was 11h55, from a quiet airport like Lanseria where it's easier to adjust your schedule to earlier takeoffs. After take-off we split into 2 groups, to create even more space, and our 4-year-old daughter wondered about the plane happily, and made friends with another young lady - that's Mango Airlines for you, not just getting you from A to B, but also making friends on the way.

Arrived at Lanseria Airport "full armed"

Unless you want to get locked up, you don't use words like "bomb" at an airport. I arrived at Lanseria Airport fully kitted out with my Baby Bjorn, camera, rucksack etc...and was surprised to hear the security joking with me that I was "fully armed"!

Booked a Mango flight special

After the review of a 1time Cape Town flight, one of our much-loved readers asked why we are we wrote about past flight specials. The reasons are twofold - (1) to help you understand how to go about booking the cheapest flights, and (2) to show you what it is possible to achieve with a bit of patience and flexibility.

For this particular flight we took full advantage of the opening flight special- Mango Lanseria to Cape Town from R495 - if you subscribe to our newsletter you'll be informed of these types of flight specials.

So happy that Mango is flying to Lanseria Airport

I'm so happy that Mango are flying to Lanseria Airport, as it's my favourite - no seperation of peeps into business class and economy class, instead we all mix as one, a rudimentary airport without the expensive glamour and glitz that ACSA have gone for (and which have resulted in them increasing airport taxes by 70%) - I'm a no-frills guy who likes low cost carriers and low airline prices, whilst the new King Shaka Airport is admittedly stunning, I'm not interested in paying through my nose for it. I choose a a no-frills airport like Lanseria on any day which ends in "y".

And the best thing about Lanseria Airport for me - parking off at Wiesenhof's (owned by ex-Springbok rugby player Kobus Wiese & family), and taking photos from the deck with my Canon 5Dii - as an avid photographer, I love the fact that you can take clickies without any glass in the way.

In fact I was feeling so delighted that I told a Mango flight attendant how happy I felt that Mango was flying from Lanseria - she was lost for words! Before Mango started flying from Lanseria I hardly flew with them - I'm ashamed to say that the last time we booked Mango pre-Lanseria was on the 9th August 2007.

Eating Mango on Mango

Our little son, like his Dad, loves chowing dried Mango fruit, and appropriately was eating a Mango on Mango airlines. For some reason the girls in our family refuse to eat Mango whilst the boys love it!

Scuttlebutt - Mango pilots earning a third of SAA pilots

Through the rumour network I heard that "Mango pilots are paid a third of SAA pilots". Can this be true? If it's even half true it shows the power of the union at SAA. Also heard that South African Airways are working their planes much harder than before with quicker turnaround times. Profitability is good, and SAA staff will probably be getting a 14th cheque! Don't know whether any of this is true, but good to hear that the days of SAA lining up for bailouts may be over. Hats off to Siza Mzimela (SAA's Chief Executive, formerly of SA Express) and Cheryl Carolus (Chairwoman of SAA) - I have a lot of faith in these two ladies!

Colourful Car Rentals at Lanseria

I love the colouful temporary car rental offices at Lanseria Airport (we'd hired a Ford Ikon from First Car Rental, who were cheapest).

Mango supporting the SKA

Was fantastic to see our Mango plane was decked out with the url of the Square Kilometre Array on it. This is an initiative we support, and we think there's a scientific tour of southern Africa which could be created, including visits to SALT (the telescope in Sutherland) and the SKA.

Mango, give this man a raise!

Out of all my years of travelling, I have never had an airline employee stop and assist me with my luggage. Unfortuanately I've forgotten this good soul's name, but Mango, please track him down and give him a raise! At Cape Town airport, after we landed, he took the trouble to stop and help us with our baggage. Thank you, Sir!

Why had we been in Gauteng & what are our plans?

We'd soared high with wonderful characters at Bill Harrop's hot air ballooning outfit in the Magalies River Valley, gone on one of the longest zip lines in the world at Ama Zwing Zwing and and enjoyed some serenity at Amanzingwe (write-ups to follow). Next month we'll be saying "Hola" from Barcelona and reviewing a Royal Caribbean International cruise in the Meditteranean, and we are making plans to review the Point Hotel in November and then returning to Johannesburg early December. In the new year we're hoping to conduct another review of a MSC Sinfonia or MSC Melody cruise. We love reviewing travel experience, and if you can offer us something enticing and can stomach an honest review (!) drop us a note at - we'll give you a free listing on our website and a write-up in our newsletter (goes to over 53,000).

17 Aug 2015

Mango announces that they will commence Lanseria - Durban flights on the 15th of October 2015.

1 Jun 2011

Mango begins thrice daily flights between Johannesburg Lanseria and Cape Town International Airport.

Gavin Sayce, MD of Lanseria Airport said: We continue to offer the widest distribution and payment method network to our guests, and operations from Lanseria will further cement Mango's commitment to its mandate of making air travel more accessible and affordable to South Africans. We're extremely excited about Mango including this route into their stable. It's not only great for Lanseria, but also great for consumers, offering them a wider choice when travelling. We're really looking forward to what this new development will bring in the future.

Nico Bezuidenhout, Mango Airlines Chief Executive Officer said that Demand has significantly increased across all routes and the introduction of a second presence in Gauteng will further strengthen Mango's value proposition.

The schedule
Mango flies between Lanseria and Cape Town 3 times daily in each direction, with each flight taking approximately 2 hours.
