Very impressed with Mangos service, first time I have flown with them and found the leg room way better than on some of the other local flights. Plane was clean and on board service was pretty great

Both flights departed and arrived on time. Staff were pleasant. There were no problems at Durban International but the Cape Town airport leaves much to be desired. Not at all passenger friendly. Long queues and airport staff very unfriendly.

Booking online is easy and auto checkin and...
