Air Seychelles orders one A320neo

Air Seychelles has placed its first order of the new generation A320neo (new engine option) aircraft as part of the plan to refresh its fleet and increase efficiency on its regional network.

The new addition will be entering the Air Seychelles fleet in the second half of 2019 and will enable the airline to increase the capacity on its Johannesburg and Mumbai routes while at the same time delivering significant fuel savings, reducing the airlines’ operating costs.

Remco Althuis, Chief Executive Officer of Air Seychelles, said: “We are delighted to once again work with Airbus to bring the most technologically advanced and efficient aircraft across our regional network.” He added: “As part of the strategic plan, this new order will not only enable the airline to gradually replace its existing jet fleet with modern new aircraft, but it will also enable Air Seychelles to further strengthen its business by operating in a more efficient manner.”
