Gallivant Africa

The World Travel Awards was a big hit this year, with a wide range of long time winners and new ones alike. Air Seychelles managed to grab a win for themselves as the “Indian Ocean’s Leading Airline – Economy Class”.

Seychelles’ Minister of Tourism, Civil Aviation, Ports and Marine Didier Dogley said: “Winning the World Travel Awards is indeed a remarkable achievement for Air Seychelles and its staff members who continues to go the extra mile in providing a satisfactory service to its guests to enable the airline to maintain its valuable contribution to our tourism-based economy.”

Air Seychelles Chief Executive Officer, Remco Althuis said: “Being recognized by industry professionals across Africa and the Indian Ocean is indeed motivating, given that last year the airline embarked on a transformation plan to rebuild its reputation as the leading airline in the Indian Ocean.

“This award is a testament that the airline is slowly progressing forward amidst the challenging environment we operate in and for that I would like to thank all the colleagues at Air Seychelles as well as our partners for their continuous support.”

Speaking to the media at the event, Head of Guest Experience, Rosemary Monthy highlighted: “It is an honor to be recognized by the World Travel Awards and we are delighted to be taking home the best Economy Class Award.

“It is indeed a great achievement for the national airline of Seychelles in recognition of the efforts we put in delivering quality products and warm hospitality in our economy class cabin.

“Building on this accomplishment, we will continue to enhance our economy class product and service to continue to deliver an exceptional inflight experience for our guests as we aim on becoming the leading airline in the Indian Ocean.”
