Mango Airline’s Fleet

Mango are receiving 2 new B737-800s in August 2013, which will be fitted with a new seating arrangement, offering between 6 & 7.5cm additional legroom. The seats also weigh less, and the design allows the same density of seats currently offered. Up to April 2014, Mango are going to be working on replacing their entire fleet’s seats with the new seats. Mango Airlines leases six B737-800 aircraft from its parent company, South African Airways (South African Airways, in turn, leases the aircraft from a leasing company, Gecas, which owns the aircraft). One of the Mango planes has had Brother International branding on it since January 2013.
Mango’s fleet consists of 10 Boeing jets: 1 Boeing 737-300 and 9 Boeing 737-800s. The Boeing 737-300 seats 142 passengers, while the 800 seats 186.
