Daily Trust - - BUSINESS - By Ab­bas Ji­moh

The South African Air­ways (SAA) has won the best air­line in Africa for 2016.

While the air­line also won other awards, the most prominent was the 2016 Sky­trax award for Best Air­line in Africa, which it has now won for a record 14 times at a cer­e­mony on Wednes­day at the Farn­bor­ough Air­show in Lon­don.

A spokesman of SAA Mo­hammed Ab­dul­lahi said yesterday in a state­ment that the Sky­trax awards, the in­no­va­tion of an in­de­pen­dent avi­a­tion re­search or­gan­i­sa­tion, have be­come an in­sti­tu­tion on the an­nual events cal­en­dar and that the awards are based on un­so­licited cus­tomer feed­back which makes them the bench­mark of air­line ex­cel­lence.

He quoted the SAA act­ing CE Musa Zwane as say­ing: “We are right­fully ex­cited and proud to have won the Sky­trax Award as Best Air­line in Africa, for the four­teenth con­sec­u­tive year, which demon­strates that SAA is still one of the fore­most air­lines in the world, and the leader on the con­ti­nent. Awards are im­por­tant as they in­stil a sense of pride from our em­ploy­ees and cus­tomers alike.
