The national carrier of the Republic of Seychelles is now ranked the No. 2 airline in Africa, up eight places from its previous ranking of 10 last year, and now holds the No. 3 spot for Best Airline Staff in Africa, a category in which the airline held no ranking last year.
Air Seychelles is now ranked fourth globally in the Most Improved category. This year, Air Seychelles’ overall ranking is 56, up from133 last year and the highest in its history.
Cramer Ball, Chief Executive Officer of the airline, said: “This is a significant achievement for Air Seychelles and further confirmation that the airline is moving in the right direction. To climb so quickly in the Skytrax rankings in such a short time is evidence of our team’s determination to be the best airline in the Indian Ocean and to fulfil Air Seychelles’ vision to be a high quality, profitable airline
“The Global Airline Awards are based on traveller feedback, so it is pleasing to see that our customers are recognising the rapid progress we are making towards being the best airline in the region.”
Mr. Ball said Air Seychelles’ staff and the whole Seychellois community should be rightly proud of the national airline.
“The results demonstrate our commitment to training, our investment in our people and our product and further demonstrates the value of our partnership with Etihad Airways,” he said.
