South African Airlines Announces New Partnership for In-Flight Meals


Good news for foodie flyers: South African Airways has brought Tsogo Sun’s Executive Chef Benny Masekwameng onboard to upgrade its premium and regional onboard menu.

The signature dishes of Benny Masekwameng, Executive Chef of the Tsogo Sun group and celebrated MasterChef South Africa judge, will be introduced in all of SAA’s international premium class and regional flights. (For the record, Luxury Travel Advisor has been a fan of SAA's cuisine in previous trips.)

In keeping abreast of global food and beverage trends, SAA refreshes its food and beverage menu annually. Each SAA customer is offered a complimentary menu selection that includes Halaal, Kosher and Vegetarian options. Also, the wine selection is excellent (ask the flight attendants to recommend a vintage with the meal), and there are plenty of snacks worth trying for lighter bites.
