Sawubona is the airline’s multi-award winning in-flight magazine, packed to the brim with inspirational and vibrant travel, business and lifestyle content to keep travellers entertained while they take to the skies.

“This World Travel Award and every other service excellence award SAA receives, serve as a significant motivation for employees to keep doing their best to stand out. 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.
