Mango has launched an in-flight wireless broadband connection. With about a 115 passengers on-board, everyone was looking forward to what was supposed to be the first of its kind in SA but not everything went according to plan. WATCH

Mango, the low cost subsidiary of South African Airways, will stop flying between Johannesburg and Bloemfontein as of July 19, according to Tourism Update.

This is due to the route being “over-traded”.

It has also unveiled plans to grow its Cape Town-Bloemfontein service over the next 18 months as a result of growing demand, increasing flights from five to six a week. 

“The success of Bloemfontein-Cape Town highlights the incredible opportunity that low-cost carriers offer to under-serviced routes,” said CEO, Nico Bezuidenhout.
