South African Airways (SAA) has been voted the Best Airline in Africa by readers of Business Traveler Magazine.

The South Africa flag carrier also scooped the Best Business Class to Africa prize at the awards ceremony, which was held in New York earlier this month.

Commenting on the achievement, SAA's executive vice-president for North America, Todd Neuman, said the firm was honoured that the magazine's readers, who are experienced travellers, had chosen SAA.

"These travellers have recognised the level of detail that SAA goes to in order to ensure their comfort, including the continual enhancements we make to our product both on the ground and in the air," he added.

Improvements on SAA flights include the introduction of meal selections from star chef Benny Masekwameng, who is a judge on South Africa's version of the 'Master Chef' TV programme, and the increase of comfort levels on its 180-degree flatbed seats.
