Economy South Africa Airways voted Africa's leading Airline

South African Airways has been voted Africa’s leading Airline in the first class and business airline category.

Country Manager, Vincent Mupwaya says South African Airways was awarded as the
leading Airline by the World Travel Awards in May this year.

Mr. Mupyaya says there has been an overwhelming response from the general public
throughout the world connecting flights to Lusaka and Livingstone in the past year.

Mr Mupyaya was speaking during a travel agents awards giving ceremony in Lusaka today.

South African Airways is a member the Star Alliance Network, which was established
in 1997 as the first truly global airline alliance to offer customers worldwide a
smooth travel experience.

The Alliance, with membership of over 10 major Airlines worldwide, offers more than
16,000 daily flights to 855 destinations in 155 countries.

And Tourism and Natural Resources Deputy Minister, Michael Kaingu, said government
is aware of the significant contribution South African Airways has made in promoting
tourism growth in the region.

He said South African Airways has partnered with local institutions such as Zambia
National Tourist Board (ZNTB) and the Tourism Council of Zambia (TCZ) to enhance
tourism growth in Zambia by bringing in local and foreign tourists.


  1. Meanwhile we helped kill our own. Can anyone please revive something similar to former Zambia Airways, a National Airline for Zambia?

  2. Meanwhile we helped kill our own. Can anyone please revive something similar to former Zambia Airways, a National Airline for Zambia? Sorry, above posted by CK.

  3. What Zambia has to show are two or so old Zambian Airways aircraft that shuttle between Jo’burg, Lusaka and Ndola and are ever delayed! Up SAA!

  4. Brother Zed lacks the political will for such an investment. SAA will continue to profit at the expense of Zed because our leaders/govt dont see the real benefit of a national airline. What a shame….

  5. Sometimes i even wonder whether they are other countries in Africa worth talking off.
    Therefore, it is impractical to comapre RSA economy and industry to none and jeopardised industries in Africa.
    SAA is the only airline in Africa worth talking, it’s like comapring it to none.

  6. Good attorney information. Kudos to you for posting this. I will return for more
