South African Airways awarded 4-Star Skytrax ranking 16 times

South African Airways awarded 4-Star Skytrax ranking 16 times

JOHANNESBURG. South African Airways (SAA) has maintained a 4-Star Skytrax ranking, in both Business and Economy Class, for a 16th consecutive year.

“This win will surely strengthen our global position for once again being awarded a 4-Star ranking. Awards demonstrate that SAA is standing its ground as one of the leading airlines in the world,” said Tlali Tlali, SAA spokesperson.

The SAA stations audited this year was South Africa: ORTIA, Durban, and Cape Town; regional – Mauritius and international: Hong Kong, UK, Perth, and São Paulo. “We were also fortunate to have had our new Airbus A330-300 audited this year amongst our aircraft fleet. The A330-300s are state-of-the-art aircraft and the latest acquisition in our fleet,” said Tlali.

The Skytrax 4-Star ranking is a seal of quality approval awarded to airlines supplying good quality performance across a range of product and service-delivery rating areas. Skytrax assessed the rating after detailed product and service standards audits for each featured airline and not connected to any customer ratings.

A 4-Star Airline rating signifies airlines providing a good standard of product and staff service across all travel categories, including cabin seating, safety standards, cabin cleanliness, comfort amenities, catering, tax-free sales, reading materials, in-flight entertainment, and staff service.

Skytrax, an independent, global airline-rating organization, awarded the 4-Star rating placing the airline amongst other international and partner airlines. SAA has maintained quality levels throughout what has been another challenging year for the airline, delivering an excellent product and service standards to our customers, making this 4-Star Airline ranking well deserved.

Skytrax commented: “The South African Airways product and service standards continue to perform at a standard that is meeting 4-Star levels and this applies to long-haul, regional, and domestic flights.”

“SAA operates in a highly competitive environment with other African airlines such as Air Mauritius, Royal Air Maroc, Air Seychelles, and Ethiopian Airways also achieving 4 Stars. Winning awards inspires us to seek further opportunities for service excellence and act as an important motivation for employees to keep doing their best and further improve the travel experience of the millions of customers who choose to fly with SAA,” said Tlali.
SAA recently also won four of the six APEX Regional Passenger Choice Awards (PCAs) for Best Seat Comfort, Best Cabin Service, Best Food and Beverage, and Best Overall in Africa for airlines operating in the Africa region. The airline won the Best in Region – Africa award twice before, in 2012 and 2011.

Major awards SAA received in 2017:

  1. SAA retained a 4-Star Skytrax rating in both Economy and Business Class for 15 years in a row. The airline is the proud holder of the Skytrax award as Best Airline in Africa for 14 years running.
  2. SAA’s in-flight magazine Sawubona won the award for Africa’s Leading In-flight Magazine for the third year in a row at the World Travel Awards™, voted for by travel and tourism professionals worldwide.
  3. A Voyager member, Dr Sheng Chun Wen, with Gold status, won one million Voyager miles with his composite image as part of the Star Alliance competition offering one million miles from each of the 21 Frequent Flyer Programmes. The competition was in celebration of Star Alliance’s 20th anniversary.
  4. Readers of the Business Traveller magazine chose SAA for the 11th consecutive year as Best African Airline at the Business Traveller Awards 2017.  The awards are widely regarded as the market’s benchmark for excellence.
  5. SAA was named the winner in the African Long-Haul Airline category at the Business Traveller Africa Conference and Awards in September, an event for the South African business travel trade, which is held in association with Business Traveller magazine.
  6. SAA again took first place in the Domestic Airline category at the Sunday Times Top Brand Awards, which are based on research conducted by leading market research company, TNS, and reflects consumer and business perspectives on brands in South Africa.

United Airlines Expands East Coast Schedule, Maximizing New York and Washington, D.C. Hubs

NEW YORK, May, 14, 2018 - United Airlines (UAL) today announced it is expanding its schedule at its East Coast hubs in New York/Newark and Washington-Dulles. The network adjustments build on United's leading route network at New York/Newark where the airline serves more destinations than any other carrier from the New York City metro area. Additionally, the changes to its Washington-Dulles schedule will offer more customers easy access to the nation's capital and seamless connections to flights throughout the United StatesCanadaEuropeAsia and the Caribbean.  

Beginning in October, United will maximize the unique strengths of each hub by adding new destinations, additional frequencies and larger two-cabin aircraft. The schedule adjustments are designed to offer more nonstop flights to destinations popular with New York area customers while reallocating largely connecting passenger flights on short-haul routes to United's hub at Washington-Dulles. United will transition service between New York/Newark and Chattanooga, TennesseeIthaca, New York, and Scranton, Pennsylvania to Washington-Dulles. 

"We approached these schedule adjustments with our customers in mind, knowing that we wanted to create a schedule that offers customers beginning their travel in the New York City area convenient flights to many of the business and leisure destinations they frequent the most," said Ankit Gupta, United's Vice President of Domestic Network. "Since more of our customers begin their travel from New York/Newark than any other United hub city, we've created a more customer friendly schedule that removed connection times and provided convenient nonstop service to multiple U.S. destinations."

New York/Newark (EWR)

Offering customers more flights to more destinations than any other airline in the New York City region, United is increasing nonstop service between New York/Newark and 15 destinations, beginning October 4, 2018.

Washington-Dulles (IAD)

"As we set out to build this schedule for our customers, we considered Washington-Dulles' more optimal schedule offering for connecting flights and conducted an in-depth analysis of some of the short-haul flights scheduled from our Newark hub," said Gupta. "We determined that by shifting certain regional flights from Newark to Dulles, our customers will have more schedule flexibility and better options for connections on regional routes."
