They are a source of encouragement, reminding us to keep on the lookout for ways to improve the travel experience of the millions of customers who choose to fly with SAA. We are proud of the Sawubona team and are delighted that the hard work they put into the magazine has been acknowledged.

“We extend our sincere gratitude to our outgoing publishers, Ndalo Media, for their sterling contribution and partnership throughout the past five years, which led Sawubona to become an award-winning inflight magazine with compelling content,” says Tlali Tlali, SAA Spokesperson.
