SAA refutes ‘non-Halaal’ food claims


1 min read

South African national carrier, SAA has slammed reports claiming that its food is not Halaal by staff at the food company that caters to the national airline.

In a statement the airline’s spokesperson, Tlali Tlali reassured Muslim passengers that the airline follows the “highest Halaal standards” when serving food to its customers.

He added that the catering subsidiary of the airline which also caters for SA Express and all SAA corporate functions, is Muslim Judicial Council compliant.

“In our view, this seems to be the work of a few disgruntled employees who’s intention is nothing but to bring the company into disrepute and we reject these claims as baseless as ones that are motivated by nothing but malice.”
