While Mango Airlines apologised for flight interruptions and for leaving hundreds of passengers stranded, it has said that its senior management is in discussions with Airports Company South Africa (ACSA).
Besides owing ACSA money, the airline also has several other losses.
EWN reports that the low-cost carrier said that none of its flights scheduled for Wednesday morning had taken off, as it was unable to process passengers’ information on the system at the check-in counters.
Rumours are doing the rounds that the state-owned airline might have to go into business rescue as it is unable to pay the salaries of its employees.
The check-in desks at Cape Town International Airport had no employees behind them as passengers waited on any news from the airline.
According to EWN, Mango Airlines has confirmed that their planes will take off again on Thursday, and that all passengers who missed out on flying on Wednesday, will be accommodated.
