Airline Updates: Air Seychelles

Air Seychelles takes home four prestigious World Travel Awards including ‘Indian Ocean’s Leading Airline’

Air Seychelles, the national airline of the Republic of Seychelles, has been awarded four prestigious accolades at the 2016 World Travel Awards, including the title of “Indian Ocean’s Leading Airline” for the second year running.

In addition to winning the coveted title, the Seychelles-based airline was presented with awards for “Indian Ocean’s Leading Airline – Business Class”, “Indian Ocean’s Leading Airline – Economy Class” and “Indian Ocean’s Leading Cabin Crew”.

Air Seychelles picked up the awards at a red carpet ceremony that was held yesterday on the Tanzanian island of Zanzibar and attended by Roy Kinnear, Chief Executive Officer and the airline’s senior management team. The World Travel Awards was established in 1993 to recognise and reward excellence in the travel trade and its winners are decided through a global voting system by more than 600,000 industry professionals and consumers.

Congratulating on the national airline’s success, Minister Morgan said: “Winning four highly-prized accolades at this year’s World Travel Awards, and beating our record of three in 2015, is an incredible achievement for Air Seychelles that demonstrates its commitment to being the best airline in the region.

“This accomplishment caps off a period of great growth at Air Seychelles that has seen it improve many aspects of the travel experience, on both its international flights to Mahé and domestic island-hopping services. 

“Air Seychelles continues to push the boundaries of what can be achieved by a boutique airline and by doing so, it is making a valuable contribution to our tourism-based economy.”

Roy Kinnear, Chief Executive Officer of Air Seychelles, said: “Taking home the title of Indian Ocean’s Leading Airline for the second consecutive year, along with three other fantastic accolades, was a very proud moment and clearly shows that our strategy of putting guests first is working.

“Its innovative spirit and tireless drive has seen Air Seychelles rise quickly through the ranks to become a leading airline that proudly symbolizes the warm hospitality and joie de vivre of the Seychelles culture,” he was quoted as saying.
