In 2020 following the sudden drop in travel demand due to the COVID-19 pandemic, flying for a time was at a standstill.
For a regional carrier to remain commercially viable, following the closure of borders across our network, we had to quickly shift our strategy to focus on operating cargo, repatriation and charter flights.
Amidst the global pandemic, the beautiful colours of the Air Seychelles livery were spotted at more than 30 destinations across the Asian, European and African continents connecting stranded families together in addition to delivering essential COVID-19 medical supplies.
This incredible yet challenging journey, requiring intense planning, really tested the capacity of our assets and teams who I must say embraced all obstacles with great determination.
Today I am beyond proud to be part of the Air Seychelles family to which I salute and extend my gratitude for always keeping up the positive momentum.
Despite the unprecedented event, the tireless efforts of the entire Air Seychelles team were recognised at the 2020 World Travel Awards where the airline collected three prestigious accolades including ‘Indian Ocean’s Leading Airline’, ‘Indian Ocean’s Leading Airline – Business Class 2020’ as well as ‘Indian Ocean’s Leading Cabin Crew 2020’ for the fifth year running.
This remarkable achievement is testament to the hard work and commitment of our teams who during the exceptional year of 2020 remained agile, persevered and went the extra mile in ensuring every flight was conducted safely and successfully. Well done and keep aiming high for Air Seychelles!
I also convey my gratitude to you, our valuable guests, for your encouragement. Your continuous support has helped us to raise the bar higher and with your feedback we will proceed in exploring ways to keep delivering the unrivalled customer service we provide to you.
Even if the new norm for travel now requires you to wear a mask, we are always delighted to welcome you onboard with a smile. Thank you for keeping safe and for choosing to fly with Air Seychelles.
Have a great trip
