Air Seychelles Reviews-Roy Kinnear

The merge of two airlines on September 15, 1977 by the Seychelles government is what started Air Seychelles. The merge of Air Mahe and Inter-Island Airways later on started its international routes in 1983, and by then was operating as “Air Seychelles” with their first inaugural flight from Frankfurt to London. The main base is at Seychelles International Airport with a fleet size of 11 serving 10 destinations. Air Seychelles is in alliance with Etihad Airways Partners.

Air Seychelles has been nominated since 2003 as “Indian Ocean’s Leading Airline – Business Class and Indian Ocean’s Leading Cabin Crew.”

Effective on the 1st of July 2015, Roy Kinnear replaced Manoj Papa as the Chief Executive Officer of Air Seychelles. Mr. Kinnear is an ex-employee of Etihad, with which the airline is in alliance with a 60-40 ownership percentage.

The Official Website and Social Media Sites

Here’s the main reason why I wrote this review after all. Air Seychelles’ official website really caught my attention with it’s colorful layout. The cozy choice of background of three travel bags over the sunrise reflecting the glass window gives a welcoming expression.

The services at their website let customers search or book flights and manage their booking. The flipping effect of my trip and book flights gives you the tech-y feel of an iOS user. The header of the page is tabs where customers can read information such as inflight services, policies, and the Etihad Guest program.

Unfortunately the airline hasn’t extended its service to a mobile application. However, travellers can learn more about their services with their Facebook and Twitter social media accounts:

After all the Air Seychelles reviews, I personally want to try their VIP Royal jet. Who doesn’t want to experience VIP class? Hearing a lot of recommendations and praises from their customers with small served destinations is good news. This means Air Seychelles can be a good competitor to other regular airlines. We’re hoping to see them at the top with other international route airlines.

  1. It’s true that there aren’t personal TVs like on Virgin or BA but this wasn’t particularly important to me – I’d rather read a book. The food was tasty and drinks are free. My only niggle is that it wasn’t that clear that we would be stopping.
