Low cost airline Mango this week launched its third app, this time for all devices operating Microsoft’s Windows 8.1 operating system. In celebration of the app launch, the airline has made Windows exclusive fares available from R 1 for a limited time.
The R 1 sale is exclusively available through the Mango app on the Windows 8.1 platform and on sale until 31 May 2015 for travel until end June 2015.
“The inclusion of the Mango app for Windows devices is an indication that our app ecosystem is growing and that Microsoft contributes significantly to local app development. And it is always exciting to be able to add value to users’ lives which is exactly what the R 1 flights offer does,” Maria Thomson, apps marketing and merchandising manager at Microsoft.
Mango was the first African airline to offer a mobi-site and apps allowing bookings, payment and flight management on the go. The Mango app is available for download in all app stores for Android, Apple, Blackberry and Windows 8.1 devices.
