AIR BOTSWANA has been named best full service regional airline at the annual excellence awards of the Airports Company of South Africa.
The award is for Air Botswana’s passenger services at O.R.Tambo (formerly Johannesburg) International Airport and Cape Town International Airport.
The ACSA Feather Awards are based on customer surveys and snap appraisals conducted at different times of the day and week by professional researchers.
The award was received at a presentation function in Johannesburg by Charmain Lemkus, Air Botswana sales manager South Africa, and Douglas Horton, Air Botswana’s airport manager at O.R.Tambo International.
“It is most gratifying to get this recognition at the highest level for the quality of our services away from home,” said Lance Brogden, Air Botswana’s Chief Executive Officer.
“This achievement reflects the performance of all our staff and associates in South Africa, who, of course, operate with the full backing of their colleagues in Botswana.”
Paying tribute to his staff, Air Botswana’s South Africa Area Manager, Justice Masole, said: “This award is the result of efficiency and teamwork. I thank them all for their personal contribution to this great achievement.”
The route between Gaborone and O.R.Tambo is Air Botswana’s busiest, with several flights daily in both directions. The airline also operates to Johannesburg’s second airport, Lanseria.
Air Botswana operates twice a week between Maun and Cape Town, providing the only direct link between two premier tourism destinations in Africa ÔÇô the great Okavango Delta and the beautiful Cape.
