Mango Airlines and a Peanut Allergy

If you’re flying a domestic flight in South Africa,  Mango is one of the affordable airlines, but can you fly with Mango airlines if you have a peanut allergy?

I recently found out that Arren’s peanut allergy is airborne, he got hives all over his body just because there was a peanut spill in a grocery store, as I ran home, I saw that he started getting better, but as you know when you fly you can’t exactly crack a window to let in fresh air.  When you fly you’re stuck in a metal tube with recycled air and nowhere really to go.

Some people will make the comment that you shouldn’t be flying then, but we all know that’s not the case, we’re leaving the country in a couple of weeks and leaving Arren behind is not an option.

Instead of freaking out I decided to start contacting airlines and asking them if they have an allergy program.

When contacting Mango Airlines, I felt like I got a cold response,  but that’s what you get for asking questions I guess.  The response from Mango Airlines stated that they do not have an allergy program, they won’t make a buffer zone, they won’t make an announcement and they won’t stop serving peanuts.  If you have a Peanut allergy and you’re thinking about flying mango, I would  give them a skip over.
