DURBAN - Effective 11th July 2019, Fly Mango will operate two flights a day between Nelson Mandela Bay’s Port Elizabeth Airport and Lanseria International airport aboard Boeing 737-800 series.
The service is expected to capture a mix of Visiting Family & Relatives (VFR), business and leisure traveller originating around Greater Johannesburg, the Gauteng province and beyond. Lanseria International Airport offers a gateway to the North, which covers ‘the cradle of humankind and Sun City.
This will further expand and diversify Port Elizabeth’s destination offering in our quest to build a true industrial, lifestyle and living city. From the onset, our Airlift strategy identified Lanseria as one of the “low hanging opportunities”, and within one year, we have managed to secure the air travel link.
Furthermore, we understand that airlift is critical for seamless flow of trade and tourism, thus our Airlift strategy has identified Kruger Mpumalanga including the catchment, Zimbabwe, and Namibia as the potential markets the collective (the City, ECDC, Nelson Mandela Bay Business Chamber, and ACSA) will be pursuing to link with Nelson Mandela Bay in the next 12 to 24 months/
The addition of a new destination is a result of a collaborative airlift work between the City, Eastern Cape Development Corporation, Nelson Mandela Bay Business Chamber, Lanseria International Airport and Airports Company South Africa, operated by Mango Airlines to offer travellers an alternative point linking Gauteng province with Nelson Mandela Bay.
