Johannesburg - In what could be one of the largest online events in South African e-commerce history, low cost airline, Mango will make 10 000 flights available for R1 on its redesigned mobile app.

The airline announced in a statement that from Monday 2 June, for a limited period, it will make flights available for R1 as part of a return fare where the second leg will be priced normally and exclude taxes and third party charges. 

The offer will only be available for travel in June and July, and through a downloaded Mango app for Android, Apple and Blackberry 10 platforms from Monday 2 June until 4 June 2014. 
Mango became the first domestic airline to offer flight bookings and payments on the go last year and, the updated release offers a host of additional features.

“Not only will Guests be able to check in for their domestic flights via the app but air travel has become even more accessible with the introduction of the majority our payment methods via the app, including Edgars and Jet account cards and Voyager Miles,” says CEO Nico Bezuidenhout.

Debit transfers are at this time not activated through Mango’s mobile apps. Guests are also able to register and save details with push notifications keeping consumers abreast of special offers and airline news.  

Innovation continues to drive Mango’s commercial impetus and the airline plans to further enhance its mobile and social media platforms over time.

“Soon paperless boarding passes will become the norm rather than the exception,” says Bezuidenhout.

He adds that the business is presently examining all processes in order to reinvent and ease its Guest experience.

“Mango relentlessly pursues constant and never ending improvement, making it as easy as possible to do business with us.”  

Mango apps for Android, Apple and Blackberry 10 are available through all platform app stores and must be downloaded and used to participate in the R 1 sale.

The offer is not available on Mango’s website nor through its call centre.
