Barry Hilton Joins The Mile High Comedy Club
First ever live performance of comedian aboard aircraft – Mango celebrates its birthday in style.
In celebration of its first birthday, Mango announced today that top comic Barry Hilton will be performing on two of its birthday flights on 15 November – JE 135 departing O.R. Tambo International at 08h25 and JE 146 departing Cape Town International at 11h05. The live performances, a world first, will see Hilton deliver some of his latest material presented during his current Gauteng tour.
The performances form part of Mango’s first birthday celebration; a year of making domestic air travel more affordable to all South Africans and over achieving with several aviation firsts. “Mango is an airline of firsts,” says Communication Manager Hein Kaiser, “in our debut year the airline has made it possible to pay for bookings on Edgars and Jet store cards, we created a true low cost carrier based on international best practice and soon Mango will be announcing one of its most innovative distribution channels yet. It’s been a fantastic year for the airline and, despite some of our competitors’ naysay – Mango has delivered on its mandate and is well on its way to achieving our two year profitability plan. What better way to celebrate our birthday of achievements than sharing a couple of laughs with our Guests.”
