SAA Wins ‘Best African Airline’ Award for 10th Consecutive Year

South African Airways has once again scooped the ‘Best African Airline’ Award at the Business Traveller Awards 2016. This is the 10th consecutive year that SAA has won the accolade, adding to a line-up of awards the airline received this year including a 4-Star Airline Skytrax ranking for the 14th year in a row.

Earlier this year SAA’s new VIA Domestic Lounge at OR Tambo International Airport (JNB) won a prestigious design award at the International Yacht and Aviation Awards held in Venice, Italy.

The Business Traveller Awards are voted for by readers of the magazine and are designed to reward products and services that the readers themselves value. Widely regarded as the market’s benchmark for excellence, South Africa’s national carrier beat competition from Ethiopian Airlines, Kenya Airways and Comair (British Airways).
