The Skyway Aviation Handling Company PLC (SAHCO) has emerged as the best Ground Handling company in Africa as it clinched an award to that effect at the Aviators Africa Conference and Tower Awards 2022, held at the Protea Wanderers Hotel in Johannesburg, South Africa.

The award was presented at the fourth edition of the Aviators Africa Conference and Tower Awards which was well attended by delegates and airline executives from across the world.

The three-day event themed; ‘Sustainability in African Aviation’ focused on the challenges faced by the Aviation and tourism industry and recommended possible recovery paths to the challenges.

Founder and Chief Executive Officer, CEO, Aviators Africa Conference and Tower Awards, Toni Ukachukwu, said the conference was aimed at pioneering sustainability initiatives in the African Aviation eco-system whilst connecting with tourism.

Receiving Africa’s best ground handling company award on behalf of SAHCO, the Managing Director/CEO, Mr. Basil Agboarumi said it was “a long time coming” and when he saw the nomination list of the Ground Handling Companies of high repute, he was proud to see SAHCO nominated alongside National Aviation Service (NAS), Swiss Port and Kenya Ground Handling Company to which SAHCO won with a landslide victory.

Basil Agboarumi promised that SAHCO will continue raising the bar in the Aviation Ground Handling industry by building and maintaining a fleet of ultra-modern ground handling equipment that is fitted with the latest technology innovation.

He said SAHCO maintains a team of well-trained customer-centric staff with a presence in all the commercially operated airports in Nigeria and numerous ultra-modern warehouses with massive cold rooms and freezers.

Recall that SAHCO was recently awarded Aviacargo Investment Company of the year (Warehousing category) by Aviacargo journal in partnership with ATQNews. That recognition was made possible by virtue of SAHCO’s ultra-modern quality warehouse which is one of the best in West Africa as regularly attested to by its numerous clients.
