Mango announced in a press statement today (30 January 2013) that it is the first domestic airline in SA to launch an app in the Apple App Store.

The airline added that it does have plans to make the app available across most other mobile platforms during the next few months.

Nico Bezuidenhout, CEO of Mango, said that the popularity of their mobile website which launched last year indicated the need for mobile accessibility, such as apps.

Since the launch of its mobi-site, Mango said it has logged in excess of 30,000 flight queries from it. Usage via Apple platforms dominates device types used, making up 60% of enquiry volume.

Mango’s app will let users book, pay, change flights, receive updated airline communication, and participate in promotions, the airline said.

An information wallet will also lets users store generic travel details, Mango said.
