This past weekend, Mango Airlines brought, Sibahle Zwane, a nine-year-old aspiring pilot, one step closer to his dreams. Sibahle is a mathematics fanatic who received a lot of attention after his 702 interview with Azania Masaka went viral. Sibahle answered some of the toughest math’s questions without breaking a sweat, and mentioned that his biggest dream is to be a pilot one day “When we heard this on the radio, we wanted to commend this young gentleman for his leadership, it was a natural fit and part of our DNA to surprise and delight young aspiring pilots” said Benediction Zubane – HOD Marketing and Communications at Mango Airline.
Mango created a two day travel experience for Sibahle, his mother Mbali Zwane, and Aunt Nonhlanhla Mabambi. The three guest boarded a plane for the first time, where Sibahle received a special welcome from the pilot and seat in the cockpit to further inspire his ambitions.
“We knew the family had not experienced air travel before and we were fortunate to provide them with this experience, but our greatest surprise was sharing Sibahle’s joy when he saw the beach for the first time” concludes Zubane.
