Flying is the quickest and probably cheaper option of travelling to Durban. Car fuel and toll fees can really add up to much more than the price of a ticket offered by low cost airlines such as Mango Airlines. Mango Airlines flight tickets can also be brought further down if

  • You are a senior citizen because you will qualify for a discount on select flights on Tuesdays and Wednesdays
  • Have SAA Voyager Miles which can be used to pay for Mango flights
  • You have an Edcon Thank U Account card because interest will not be charged on the cost of the flight if paid within 6 months
  • Guests have Mango, AMEX, or Nedbank Greenbacks vouchers to pay for a flight

Mango Airlines has many daily flights into Durban from all around South Africa but it is still a good idea to book as early as possible to secure a seat.
