South African Airways receives Skytrax™ 4-star rating for 15th consecutive year

South African Airways (SAA), the national carrier of South Africa and a leading airline on the African continent has received the Skytrax™ 4-Star rating for the 15th consecutive year.  The annual rating by British aviation experts, Skytrax™, once again bestowed the 4-Star rating to SAA, after detailed product and service standard audits throughout the airline.

As measured along-side many international carriers throughout the world, a 4-Star rating signifies airlines providing a good standard of product and staff services across all customer-facing categories. These measurements include cabin seating, safety standards, cabin cleanliness, comfort amenities, catering, tax-free onboard sales, reading material inflight entertainment and staff service.  Skytrax™ 4-Star rating of SAA also included the airline’s new Airbus A330-300 aircraft which was noted for its comforts in Premium Business Class, with fully flat-bed seats that offer direct aisle access for all customers, and the spacious Economy Class with increased legroom and enhanced inflight entertainment.

“We are very proud and honored that Skytrax continues to recognize SAA with a 4-Star rating,” said Todd Neuman, executive vice president-the Americas for South African Airways. “All of us at SAA take great pride in this prestigious rating, which is a reflection of the ongoing commitment by our employees to excel and deliver a world-class product to our customers.”

The Skytrax™ 4-Star rating takes its place among a host of other honourable awards that SAA has recently received including, “Best Airline in Africa” & “Best Business Class to Africa” by leading travel publications in North America, further solidifying SAA’s position as Africa’s most awarded airline.
