Mango Airlines (subsidiary of South African Airways) will enter into a South African form of bankruptcy protection known locally as business rescue.

Parent SAA exited business rescue in April but Mango was not included.

Today the low-fare airline issued this statement on social media:

Mango Airlines apologizes for today’s flight interruptions and delays.

We can confirm that our services and all flights are temporarily suspended from today, July 27, 2021, until further notice due to outstanding payments to ATNS.

We plan to resume normal operations as soon as possible. We ask for calm and patience as we navigate these challenges. We will update the public as soon as possible. We apologize in advance for the inconvenience caused.
