Mango will either stick with newer versions of the B737-800, or consider entirely new aircraft.

At present, Mango operates ten B737-800s on flights connecting South Africa's major cities - Johannesburg served through Johannesburg O.R. Tambo and Lanseria as well as Bloemfontein, Cape Town, Durban King Shaka, George and Port Elizabeth - with Zanzibar its only international destination.
