Mango will be launching flights to Mauritius within the next 12 months. The airline is looking to expand their leisure network in Africa.

The airline’s Zanzibar – Johannesburg route has been highly lucrative and the airline is hoping that the planned Mauritius route will also show great returns. Nic Vlok, CEO of Mango, says that the domestic market is over-saturated.

Mr. Vlok believes that some Low Cost Carriers will soon be exiting the market because the market is not large enough to support them all. The airline is also planning to launching flights to Kilimanjaro from Johannesburg in the near future.
