JOHANNESBURG - Low-cost airline Mango says it is doing everything possible to prevent a strike from affecting its operations.

Flight crew embarked on a strike on Monday morning after wage negotiations failed.

Trade union Solidarity, which represents 95% of pilots, met with Mango’s management yesterday but failed to reach an agreement.

Workers are demanding an 8.5% salary increase but the low-cost airline is offering six.

Mango spokesperson Sergio dos Santos says that all the flights did take off.

“We have been affected but we managed to accommodate all of our passengers, all the flights did take off.”
