South African Airways (SAA) recognized Lion World Tours with an Award of Excellence recently.

“It’s fantastic to see our team’s hard work and efforts validated by our partners at South African Airways,” said Lucille Sive, president of Lion World Tours.

SAA awarded top travel producers who have both made a significant contribution to the company’s revenue growth and helped to build South Africa’s tourism industry. Lion World Tours, which specializes in group and individual tours to South and East Africa, was named the winner of the Award of Excellence for U.S. and Canada. The annual awards ceremony is held as part of the Tourism Indaba, one of the largest travel marketing events on the African calendar showcasing Southern Africa’s best tourism products.

“Travel agents are a critical part of our business and play a significant role in the airline’s growth,” said Theunis Potgieter, SAA general manager, commercial. “It is thus only fitting that, on an annual basis, SAA recognizes and celebrates the contribution made by travel agents. We will continue to strengthen these partnerships as they form an integral part of SAA’s growth strategy.”
