Air Seychelles Boosts Fleet

The national airline of the Seychelles has welcomed its second Airbus A330-200 with a patriotic ceremony at the Mahé International Airport. Named Vallée de Mai after Seychelles’ second UNESCO-listed Heritage Site – a nature reserve on the island of Praslin - the aircraft was staffed by an all-Seychellois crew, who were praised for their efforts in creating a ‘new and revitalised Air Seychelles’ by the airline’s CEO, Cramer Ball.

The new aircraft will enhance Air Seychelles’ operations, by increasing the airline’s flexibility and connectivity, as well as allowing it entry into new markets like the new Hong Kong route starting this month, according to Ball.  The new aircraft will also provide more services to Abu Dhabi, Johannesburg and Mauritius.

The Vallée de Mai has 18 Business Class seats and 236 Economy Class seats. It is currently deployed on partner airline Ethiad’s network until the new Air Seychelles schedule comes into effect on 24 March.
