SAA Wins Best African Airline Award

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

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.”
