SAA Wins At World Airline Awards

SAA Wins At World Airline Awards

The airline won the Best Staff Service Award as part of the highly acclaimed worldwide awards held at the Paris Air Show on Tuesday.

Qatar Airways' patented new seat design has itself already gained industry notoriety after receiving the Best Airline Innovation of the Year award at the 2017 ULTRAS (Ultimate Luxury Travel Related Awards) for its launch of Qsuite.

The World Airline Awards also recognize regional excellence, which might be more relevant to those of us not taking long, luxurious flights to and from Doha.

In addition, since the airspace closures began, the airline has been providing regular communications through its increased global call centre capacity and new, flexible call-back function on its Facebook page. The survey was conducted on more than 245 global airlines, and held annually by measuring 41 major aspects related to products and services provided by airlines.

"This recognition as the Best Low-Cost Airline in Africa comes as the stabilisation plan concludes and our focus broadens beyond commercial stability to positive movement in terms of network, distribution and fleet".

Singapore Airlines has been named world's second best airline.

As the storm system tracks north, it'll bring a heavy rain and flooding threat to a large portion of the Gulf Coast. On average, there's one named storm in June in the Atlantic, Caribbean or Gulf of Mexico every one to two years.

Turkish Airlines has been named the best airline in southern Europe for the ninth consecutive year in the 2017 Skytrax World Airlines Awards.

Thai Airways was placed as the world's eleventh best airline, moving up two notches from 13th in 2016.

Akbar Al Baker continued: "The Paris Air Show 2017 has once again been a tremendous success for Qatar Airways".

Mr. Aycı stated; "Being deemed worthy of these awards is a hallmark of our outstanding effort that we show in all spheres of aviation and the steady growth that we perform in this direction".

According to the company, more than 19-million survey entries from 105 different countries contributed to the results, comparing a whopping 325 airlines according to an industry-specific set of criteria.

Novak adds that airlines with more money can invest more into everything from buying better aircrafts to training employees and having better food on board. Maintaining its leading position in its region, Turkish Airlines continues to be rewarded by passengers from all over the world.
