Carry-on baggage is subject to the following restrictions:
May not exceed 115 cm (56 cm + 36 cm + 23 cm)
May not exceed one bag at 7 kg
In addition to carry-on baggage, you may carry on board a handbag and overcoat. Guests with infants seated on their laps may also carry a small bag catering for the in-flight needs of the infant, e.g., feeding bottles, nappies and medication
The following items may not be included in a Guest’s carry-on baggage: toy guns, cutlery, knives, scissors, syringes, blades, nail clippers or other sharp objects that appears to be or could be used as weapons.
Please note: Failure to adhere to the Mango carry-on baggage restrictions is in violation of CAT-OPS-121 Civil Aviation regulation.
New Carry-on Baggage Regulations
When you’re packing for your next trip, here’s what you need to know about the newly implemented Carry-on Baggage Regulations which came into effect 2 February 2015.
These new regulations are as follows:
Economy class carry-ons are restricted to a single piece with a maximum weight of 7 kg and within specified dimensions (36 cm x 23 cm x 56 cm), together with either a handbag and/or a slimline laptop bag.
All carry-on baggage exceeding the specifications must be checked in.
Multiple carry-on baggage items may no longer be taken on board the aircraft.
Outside of carry-on baggage, all other baggage must be checked in.
Despite these regulations, Mango Guests can rest assured that we are the only low cost airline in South Africa that allows 20 kg of check-in luggage per Guest without penalties on the number of bags that make up the total weight.
