Mango Airlines has started operating between Lanseria airport in Johannesburg and the Port Elizabeth Airport.

The low-cost airline says the introduction of the new route comes as passenger numbers and demand for more routes continue to grow.

The Lanseria-Port Elizabeth route is set to boost the local economy.

The new route comes shortly after the launch of Mango's only direct Zanzibar-Lanseria flight.
