Mango May 2017 Flight Deals

May is traditionally a quiet month in South Africa, during which most students are focused on exams, but this time it is off to a busier start.

The sequence of public holidays taking place on April comes to an end on the 1st of May 2017, which means that quite a few people will be making their way home after a brief break. The consequence is more expensive flight prices on that date and spilling over to the 2nd as well.

It does take a turn, with flights becoming more affordable during the second half of the month. Don't forget that Mother's Day is taking place on the 14th of May 2017. We'd suggest a flight ticket for mom to come visit as nothing really beats some quality time together.

Find the cheapest days to travel on below and plan accordingly.

Try to avoid Fridays where possible as it is the most expensive day of the week to travel on.

 

Avoid travelling on the 1st at all cost as it is by far the most expensive date to travel on.

Mango May 2016 Flights

May usually signifies the start of the first heavy rain, which will hopefully bring some relief to some of the drought stricken areas (at least the parts that get winter rainfall).

The 1st of May, or Workers' Day, is on a Sunday so the subsequent Monday is also a public holiday! As many will take advantage of the long weekend, flight prices are elevated around those dates.

Prices are otherwise fairly consistent on most routes as there are no major events taking place and school is still in full swing.

Mango May 2015 Flights

Workers can rejoice as May brings a public holiday just for us, Workers' Day. So on the 1st of May we can all pull the covers tighter as no alarm is set for work. This year the first falls on a Friday, making the last week of April a short 3-day work week. So if you've got three days' leave available you can create a mini-holiday otherwise you'll have to settle for a three day weekend.

You'll be able to notice the influence of the new low cost entrants to the market, Skywise and FlySafair. Their affordable airfares have lead to other airlines like Mango offering very competitive airfares. You'll want to avoid travelling on the 1st, 3rd and 31st of May 2015.

Mango May 2014 Flights

There is but one public holiday in May, and that is the famous Workers Day holiday on the 1st of May 2014. As 1 May 2014 falls on a Thursday, many people are putting in sick leave and turning it into a long weekend, Mango flight prices are slightly elevated around that weekend.

On other dates it varies a lot by flight route, with the weekends already coming into play with elevated airfares on some routes (e.g. between Johannesburg and Port Elizabeth).

Cheapest 1-way Flights

Note that the below list of 1-way flight prices was set up on the 5th April 2014, and airfares may have changed since (the longer it is since the date the airfares were set up, the greater the chance that prices have changed). Check at Mango what the latest airfares are; and click here to see whether there are any flight specials on the go at the moment.

It's pretty even-stevens at the moment for Mango flights from JHB to Cape Town in May 2014. Our guess is that this will change, and probably airfares will increase around the 1 May public holiday.

 

Mango flights from Cape Town to JHB : Try avoid flying on the weekend after the 1 May public holiday.
