Mango Airlines, the low-cost carrier based in Johannesburg, has re-selected Acro’s Series 3 Ultra Economy Class seats for two Boeing 737-800 aircraft.
The two companies have an established relationship and the latest order with Acro results in the delivery of 14 shipsets in total since Mango first selected the seat in 2014.
Benediction Zubane, head of marketing at Mango Airlines, said: “Our collaboration with Acro is a good fit as Mango constantly challenges itself to push the envelope beyond the boundaries of convention; continually developing new products and technologies with a continual focus on service excellence.
“The Series 3 Ultra seat embodies innovation and enables us to offer a class-leading seating product to our customers.”
Mango operates a fleet of Boeing 737 aircraft on domestic routes to major cities including Cape Town, Durban, George, Bloemfontein and Port Elizabeth and regional flights between Johannesburg and Zanzibar.
Alan McInnes, SVP sales for Acro, said the company are “delighted” that Mango has again selected the Series 3 Ultra product.
“The seat meets the heavy demands of the hardworking low-cost carrier fleet as it delivers unrivalled reliability and cost of ownership,” McInnes said, adding that “Passenger comfort is maximised with the reclining seatback and unique space-saving design which unlocks two inches more legroom than conventional seats.”
He continued, “We value the longstanding relationship with Mango and look forward to continuing our collaboration with South Africa’s leading low-cost carrier.”
