She affirmed that: “As a company dedicated to prioritising customer satisfaction, Wakanow.com is committed to democratising travel for Africans. One of the many ways we demonstrate this dedication is through our Pay Small Small (PSS) offering, which allows our customers to access funds when needed, removing financial obstacles to booking flights on Wakanow.com

She added that: “We are actively forging partnerships with local businesses, tour operators, and hospitality establishments, which will not only benefit our customers but also contribute to the local economy and tourism sector”.
