AIR TRAVEL: Mango Still the Most on Time Airline

 





Recent Gauteng Business News

Low cost airline Mango this month celebrates its second consecutive year as the most on time domestic airline across the routes that it operates.
The airline has maintained a 98%+ technical aircraft despatch reliability (its new generation aircraft being maintained by Africa’s leading maintenance organisation, SAA Technical) and a 92%+ on-time passenger arrival rate over the last 24-months. The achievement fulfils the airline’s operational strategy.

“Fundamental to low cost aviation and critical to Mango’s business case is operational efficiency; achieved through effective asset utilisation and delivering a reliable product, affordably, to the market,” says CEO Nico Bezuidenhout. From the outset, he says, the airline aimed to attract various market segments. “Making available air travel to the un-flown market while, simultaneously appealing to fiscal sensibilities of the business traveller.” He says that the airline has achieved this balance and notes a continued upward curve on business travel.


Mango Plus and Mango Flex were the airline’s first formal entry into the business market, developed to fulfil corporate travel requirements with product growth a yardstick of the growing move to low cost travel.

Bezuidenhout says that a 27% increase in said product growth was measured over the past 6 months. “Achievement of product and service parity has delivered substantial increases in demand; this, accompanied with economic pressure on bottom lines should see a continuance of the trend.”
