Mango Goes On Line in the Air.
10 May 2012
In a first for not only South Africa but Africa, Mango, together with Wireless G and Vodacom, have launched inflight Wi-Fi. By using G-Connect In-Flight Wi-Fi, Mango Guests can now surf the web when travelling between South Africa's major centres, at 30 000 feet.
G-Connect In-Flight Wi-Fi allows for full Internet connectivity on board Mango's aircraft, including sending and receiving emails, web browsing as well as the use of all social networks. An air-to-land SMS service will also be available.
The introduction of on-board connectivity fulfils the airline's on-going ideal of innovation in aviation and its desire for product differentiation says Mango ceo Nico Bezuidenhout. “Innovation is a cornerstone of our business along with sustained affordable fares that are relative to the prevailing market."
The service is compatible with most Wi-Fi enabled devices including smartphones, tablets and laptops. By converting their satellite infrastructure, Vodacom has ensured that the G-Connect In-Flight Wi-Fi service will keep people connected even as they travel at over 800km/h
There are three different G-Connect In-Flight Wi-Fi packages on offer. One-Way Access is priced at R50 per single sector flight with a One Day pass available at R90, irrespective of the number of flights completed during a 20 hour period. A per-minute option, billed through G-Connect online account, offers land and air convergence at R1 per minute. All three packages offer unlimited data use during the allotted time.
