Mango Airlines, a state-owned South African low-cost airline and subsidiary of South African Airways, has partnered with Germany's flag carrier, Lufthansa, to provide customers even more connections to destinations in South Africa. Lufthansa passengers can now connect to and from Johannesburg to Cape Town, Durban, Port Elizabeth and George via Mango Airlines connections.
