Travelstart and Mango Airlines have once again joined forces to give away 27 domestic flights this Mandela Day!

“Last year was an amazing success and this is why we have decided to give more South Africans an opportunity to fly!” says Travelstart.

How it works

Visit the Travelstart Facebook and Twitter pages on Mandela Day (18 July 2017) at 10:00 AM and you can nominate someone who you believe deserves a free flight.

Simply describe the person you recommend, and why you’re recommending them.

It could be your grandma who has never been on a plane, your sister who lives in another city, your mum, dad or partner. Whatever the case, Travelstart will select the best and most deserving suggestions.

Sentimental Moments from #MandelaDay 2016

It’s the sentimental moments that have made this campaign such a phenomenal success, says Travelstart.

Last year’s winners included a 90-year-old grandmother who had never been on a plane or seen the ocean before. She was nominated by her granddaughter and flown to Cape Town.

Other stories included a man who wanted to propose to his long-distance girlfriend, and a cancer survivor.
