South African Airways has finalised a codeshare agreement with its low-cost subsidiary, Mango, on the Lanseria-Cape Town route.

Under the deal, SAA will place its code on Mango-operated flights between Lanseria and Cape Town, which were launched in June with an average of three flights daily.

Mango chief executive Nico Bezuidenhout said: "Our operation at Lanseria has shown significant promise during its first quarter of operation indicating growth opportunity in the Gauteng-West region."

He added: "We also believe that with the addition of the codeshare agreement to our Lanseria base, an additional stream of bookings from SAA as marketing carrier, will further cement our success at the port."

The codeshare contract followed the successful implementation of the coastal agreement between Durban and Cape Town late last year, said SAA.
