Air Seychelles has won the “Innovative Product” award for the second year running at the annual Seychelles Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SCCI) business awards ceremony.

Held last night at the Eden Bleu Hotel, the prestigious event gathered key executives, entrepreneurs and other business leaders from the private sector to celebrate achievements in 2017.

The award recognizes the airline’s commitment to digital transformation, especially the development of its digital marketing platforms, e-commerce campaigns and website on www.airseychelles.com.

Roy Kinnear, Chief Executive Officer of Air Seychelles, said: “2017 has been a year of significant digital innovation at Air Seychelles and we are honored to once again be recognized for our initiatives by the SCCI.

“The digital revolution has brought about enormous change in air travel, from the way people search for flights online to how they pre-select their seats, and Air Seychelles is committed to staying at the forefront of this change to ensure the future growth of the business and to provide a superior flying experience to its guests.”

Over the past year Air Seychelles has continued to expand its product offering on www.airseychelles.com by enabling guests to conveniently purchase additional services, such as Fast Track, and personalize their travel by booking extra legroom seats or buying access to the Salon Vallée De Mai airport lounge.

In addition, the airline has continued to strengthen its online brand presence and drive revenue growth through better-optimized digital advertising campaigns, more visibility on travel metasearch engines and email remarketing efforts.
