At the Airport

Face mask

Guests are to note that if they do not arrive at the airport with a mask, they will be prohibited airport entry.

Travel guidance

Only individuals travelling for essential or business travel reasons are permitted to travel by air during this phase of lockdown.
Currently Mango flights are permitted between Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town.
All travellers must present a relevant travel permit and letter from their employer authorising travel. This will be checked at the entrance of airports and again at check-in / boarding.
Mango adheres to strict safety protocols and encourages our passengers to also adhere to mandated requirements for travel.
Due to these extra regulatory and safety protocols, we would advise our Guest to arrive at least two-and-half hours prior to flight.
Perspex shields have also been installed at the check-in counters as an additional protective barrier between team members and guests.
Use the Mobi-app and online check-in prior to arriving at the airport.

Hand luggage

Standard hand luggage restrictions are in place. Crew will not be able to assist in the placement of this so the airline recommends passengers to pack light, and only the essentials.


The boarding & de-boarding will take place in smaller groups, at the gate and on board.
Mango urges all airport users to wear masks and adhere to social distancing markers on floors in areas such as check-in, security and boarding.
In these areas, the airline will also be implementing no touch policies, asking that ID documentation, ticketing and tickets are shown, instead of handed, to respective Mango team members.
Bus transfers will be avoided whenever possible
Onboard the flight
