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.”
