Air Seychelles scoops four titles at World Travel Awards Africa and Indian Ocean Gala Ceremony

The 2016 World Travel Awards Africa & Indian Ocean Gala Ceremony showcased the best of the Seychelles recently at the Diamonds La Gemma dell’est in Zanzibar, Tanzania, with Air Seychelles scooping four prestigious awards.

The national air carrier in the Seychelles was named as the Indian Ocean's leading airline, and it was also awarded for being best in business class, economy class, and for its cabin crew service.

“Being recognised for these achievements by industry professionals is incredibly motivational and we look forward to building on our reputation as a leading airline in the coming years,” said Roy Kinnear, the Chief Executive of Air Seychelles.

This is the second year in a row that Air Seychelles has been named as the leading airline in the Indian Ocean, the third consecutive year for receiving the award for best business class and cabin crew service, but it was the first time it’s economy class was awarded.

The airline operates flights to Abu Dhabi, Antananarivo, Johannesburg, Mauritius, Mumbai, Paris and Beijing, as well as domestic flights and services to neighbouring Indian Ocean island nations.

“Air Seychelles continues to push the boundaries of what can be achieved by a boutique airline and by doing so it is making a valuable contribution to our tourism-based economy,” stated Joel Morgan, the chairman of Air Seychelles and the Seychelles transport minister.

The Seychelles Tourism Board retained its 2015 title for the Indian Ocean's Leading Tourist Board, and other WTA winners included Hotel Hilton Seychelles Northolme Resort & Spa as the Seychelles’ Leading Boutique Hotel Spa, Eden Bleu Hotel as Seychelles' Leading Conference Hotel, Constance Ephélia as the Seychelles' Leading Family Resort, Hilton Seychelles Labriz Resort & Spa as Seychelles' Leading Green Resort, and Constance Lémuria Seychelles as the Leading Hotel in the Seychelles.

“My congratulations to everybody who was nominated at the World Travel Awards Africa & Indian Ocean Gala Ceremony this evening and especially those who picked up a trophy,” commented Graham Cooke, the President of the World Travel Awards.

“As the first stop on our annual Grand Tour the bar has certainly been set high for the rest of the year and I look forward to greeting all of our winners from this evening at the Grand Final in the Maldives in December.”
