Business Day is reporting the state-owned airline is in discussions with the department of public enterprises and the interim board of parent company SAA. Mango may have to stop operating from May 1 and go into business rescue until July while it waits for funding, said the newspaper.
Online travel agency Travelstart said in a recent advisory that Mango’s tickets are non-refundable as per their terms and conditions.
“We are waiting for feedback from the airline to see what options are available to their passengers who are booked to travel after April 30.
“Mango has not provided us with feedback on flights departing after April 30. As the airline sits with the funds from tickets, we are governed by their policy,” said Travelstart.
