South African Airways has won the ‘Best African Airline’ Award at the Business Traveller Awards 2013 in London. This is the second year in a row that SAA has won the award and it builds on the airline’s growing reputation, having been recognised as the ‘Most On-Time Airline in the World’ three times this year by Flight Stats International.
The Business Traveller Awards are voted for by readers of the magazine as part of an annual Readers Poll and are designed to reward products and services that the readers themselves value. Widely regarded as the UK market’s benchmark for excellence, the national carrier for South Africa beat competition for the award from Kenya Airways, Ethiopian Airlines and Comair (British Airways).
South African Airways currently offers direct double daily flights between London Heathrow and Johannesburg and serves over 30 destinations within Africa on a fleet of A330 and A340s.
Gary Kershaw, SAA UK & Ireland Country Manager, said: “We are building a strong reputation and it is a great credit to our operational track record, our staff and the service they provide, that South African Airways continues to be recognised by an Award that is voted for by the travellers themselves.”
