Air Seychelles welcomes first Airbus A330-200 aircraft in its fleet
Air Seychelles will now operate its flights on its Airbus A330-200 aircraft. The airline recently welcomed its first Airbus A330-200 aircraft in its fleet. The new Airbus A330-200 aircraft is named Aldabra. The first flight landed at Seychelles International Airport from Abu Dhabi on July 5, 2012.
The airline in a statement said that the country’s civil aviation authority has decided to name the aircraft in honor of Aldabra Island, which is one of Seychelles’ most pristine and remote islands and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Aldabra is also the largest raised coral atoll in the world. This island is uninhabited, engulfed by a pristine marine environment, and renowned for its Aldabra Giant Tortoise.
Cramer Ball, Chief Executive Officer of Air Seychelles, said that the airline is extremely proud to include the fuel-efficient and state-of-the-art Airbus A330-200 in its fleet. He provided details about the aircraft and highlighted several of its exquisite features.
He said that the recently-acquired Airbus A330-200 aircraft is equipped with lie-flat seats in the Business Class cabins. The passengers traveling in business class will also be offered refreshed menu, and dine-on-demand personalized tray service. The aircraft has also installed upgraded in-flight entertainment with personal, on-demand systems at every seat.
