South African Airways Assures Muslim Customers of Halaal Meals

South African Airways (SAA) has assured all her Muslim customers that the airline maintains the highest Halaal requirements and standards in food preparation.

The airline’s reassurance follows the alleged publication of a sensational report in the Daily Voice newspaper where anonymous persons made unsubstantiated claims of non-compliance.

“SAA’s Muslim customers can be assured that AirChefs, the catering subsidiary of the airline, is compliant with the stringent Halaal requirements as stated and governed by the governing body, the Muslim Judicial Council (MJC), and is also regarded as one of the oldest, most representative and most influential religious organizations in South Africa,” says Tlali Tlali, SAA’s Spokesperson.

“The claims made are baseless and malicious and appear to be the works of a handful of disgruntled employees who wish to bring the name of AirChefs and by extension, SAA into disrepute.

“Nevertheless, the newspaper proceeded to publish a sensational report under a misleading and harmful headline, based on a mere say so of its sources without attaching weight to the countervailing evidence to the claims made. The MJC is a highly respected body in the Muslim community and the story published casts aspersions on their independence and integrity,” says Tlali.

AirChefs has central production units in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban. The production facilities are ISO 22000 certified which is the global food safety management system standard.

ISO 22000 is one of the highest standards of approval in the world. The AirChefs kitchen in Cape Town is Halaal.
