Whilst a South African airline is no longer in the top spot, Kulula took home second prize in the Skytrax 2017 awards. This makes them the best low-cost carrier in South Africa!
Mango Still Has Best Airline Rating on SA.TO
With almost 140 votes cast giving them an average score of 4,9 Mango Airlines is still the highest ranking domestic airline! If that doesn't convince you, perhaps their latest review will: "I recently flew to Zanzibar with Mango with my family of four. I was not really looking forward to flying for 4 hours plus on a budget airline, but my oh my my, was I pleasantly surprised! The check in was quick and professional, the flight was on time, the seats were comfortable with loads of leg room, and the cherry on top was the cabin crew. They were professional , efficient but what set them apart was the sense that they were really enjoying what they were doing - all with a great sense of humour! Thank you Mango - looking forward to flying with you again one day!" "
