Mango Airlines will resume flights on Monday, June 15, between Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban.
Travellers must present a travel permit and letter from their employer authorising business travel. This will be checked at the entrance to airports and again at check-in and boarding, says CEO, Nico Bezuidenhout. “Important enough to say it twice: if a traveller does not have a relevant permit for essential or business travel with the appropriate sign-off, the traveller will not be granted access to the airport and may subsequently forfeit the purchased ticket.”
Due to extra regulatory and safety protocols, passengers are asked to arrive at least two-and-half hours prior to their flight. If guests are feeling unwell, or suspect they are ill, Mango will allow one free date change to re-accommodate the passenger. This is valid from June 5 for two months, Bezuidenhout says.
“We will be strategically seating passengers on board aircraft, with exceptions made for guests travelling together,” says Nico. It will be compulsory for pax and crew to wear cloth masks prior to entering aircraft. Catering will not be provided. Passengers are asked to bring along their own refreshments. Sanitiser will be provided and aircraft will continue to be cleaned between flights and deep-cleaned each night, Bezuidenhout says.
