Johannesburg – South African Airways Cargo (SAA Cargo) was named among the top three African airlines at the Air Cargo Airline of the Year Awards 2016 in London.  

The awards were organised by Air Cargo News and are an annual gala event where the air cargo industry gathers to recognise the very best of the industry across 14 categories. SAA Cargo participated in the African Cargo Airline category.

“Getting recognition from industry at an event of this magnitude makes us feel proud as an African airline. We will work harder to strengthen our presence in Africa and beyond,” said Tleli Makhetha, general manager of SAA Cargo.

The airfreight industry awards were attended by more than 400 people who had flown in from all over the world to attend the ceremony, held at the Lancaster London Hotel.

The airline awards are based on the voting results of more than 18 000 supply chain professionals over a two-month period. Shippers, the beneficial owners of the goods, and their logistics partners were asked to vote on the publication’s website for the airline that provided the best overall customer experience and for the best service provider in each region.
