All African Airways Merit Awards

Welcome to the All African Airways Merit Awards

At All African Airways, we believe in acknowledging our pilots' performance, and we therefore offer Merit awards in different categories to them.

Please note that the process of issuing merit awards is not automated at this time, and pilots are therefore requested to inform our staff if they believe that they're eligible for any particular award. We will then evaluate the request and update the pilot profile accordingly.
