Sawubona is the name of South African Airways’ official in-flight magazine, and means ‘greetings’ or ‘hello’ in Nguni. The magazine is provided for free on all South African Airways local, international and regional flights, and has been published by the whizzes at Ndalo Media since the 1st April 2013.

Sharing the beautiful black and white cover of the October edition on Instagram, Pearl Thusi said: “At home in KZN, there should still be a copy of the very first SAWUBONA magazine I ever laid my eyes on. SAA was the first airline I ever flew with.

It was 2003, just turned 15 and I was a Miss SA Teen finalist. And I was going to be on a plane for the first time ever. I grabbed anything I could to remember the occasion. My dad drove me, were HOURS early 😂😂😂 . How things change, now they all wave at me as I sprint to the gates. Today I am a platinum member of South African Airways and on the cover of SAWUBONA @sawubonasaa (sic).”

Pearl went on to say: “We should always take stock of our achievements. 15 years later. Now I fly all over the world and I grace the cover of the same magazine that accompanied me on that unforgettable journey to make my dreams come true.”
