Mango Airlines, in a statement released on Twitter on Tuesday, 27 July, has reportedly halted all flights temporarily from Tuesday until further notice as a result of outstanding payments to the Air Traffic Navigation services (ATNS).
According to the acting CEO, William Ndlovu, he confirmed the temporal suspension and revealed the management and shareholder are locked in a discussion trying to find possible amicable solutions.
He also went ahead to apologize to affected passengers on any inconvenience the suspension might have caused and also pleaded with them to be patient with the Airline as they are doing everything possible to lift the suspension.
“We can confirm that our services and all flights are temporarily suspended from today, 27 July 2021, until further notice due to outstanding payments to ATNS,” Ndlovu said.
“We plan to resume normal operations as soon as possible. We ask for calm and patience as we navigate these challenges. We will update the public as soon as possible. We apologise in advance for the inconvenience caused,” he added.
