Air Seychelles has taken delivery of its first
The aircraft - Aldabra - has been named in honor
of Aldabra island, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of
Seychelles’ most remote and pristine islands.
Aldabra, the world's
largest raised coral atoll, is surrounded by a pristine marine
environment, uninhabited and known for its distinctive fauna
including the Aldabra Giant Tortoise.
Air Seychelles’ A330 include enhanced inflight entertainment with
personal, on-demand systems at every seat, true lie-flat seats in
Business class and refreshed menu design, as well as
dine-on-demand personalized tray service in Business class.
Cramer Ball, Air Seychelles’ Chief Executive Officer,
A330 aircraft is not only younger and more fuel-efficient, but it
also boasts excellent new product and services never before seen
at Air Seychelles. To see our pilots and cabin
crew again working proudly in uniform also shows how far Air
Seychelles has come in a relatively short time. With our colourful
aircraft livery and world-class service, we will bring the Creole
spirit to every destination we fly to.”
Minister Morgan, who is also the Chairman of Air
Seychelles, added, “To see the A330,
emblazoned with Air Seychelles’ unique livery, touch down at
Seychelles International Airport was a moment of patriotic pride
for all Seychellois. Only three months ago, we announced that we would refresh the fleet by retiring our Boeing 767 and bringing in
two Airbus A330s. We made a promise and it has been kept. I am
thrilled to now welcome our first Airbus, Aldabra, to the Air
Seychelles fleet and we look forward to watching it fly the Creole
spirit for many years to come.”
Air Seychelles will
take delivery of a second A330-200 aircraft in January 2013, at
which time flights to China will commence.
