Air Seychelles, the flagship carrier of the stunning Seychelles Islands, has once again clinched two well-deserved accolades at the highly regarded World Travel Awards, which, this year, was timed to coincide with the Arabian Travel Market (ATM) in Dubai on Monday 06th May 2024.

The national airline has been honoured with the following awards:

  • Indian Ocean's Leading Airline - Economy Class 2024
  • Indian Ocean's Leading Cabin Crew 2024

The World Travel Awards (WTA) has become a cornerstone for many in the travel, tourism and hospitality industry all over the world since its inception in 1993. Created to acknowledge, reward and celebrate excellence across these sectors, each year begins with nominations in different categories which then propels nominees to engage with the public to canvas for votes.

The awards are initiated to businesses to compete within the same region or continent. Air Seychelles falls in the Indian Ocean category battling against other regional airlines such as Air Austral and Air Mauritius to name a few. Winners within each region will then go head to head in the Grand Final at the end of the year.

Sandy Benoiton, the airline’s Chief Executive Officer accepts the awards with much pride and gratitude. “To win these accolades knowing they are awarded through public vote is proof that Air Seychelles is on the right track. The airline industry is as exciting as it is volatile and we do what we do with passion. Although we did not win as many awards as we did last year, I am immensely proud of my team whose relentless dedication has culminated in clinching these this year. We build on experiences and we will use this as motivation for even better output this year and beyond.’

The Grand Final nominations will be announced during the last quarter of the year, and as was done for the regional awards, a public vote will be called in support of the national airline at this time.

Air Seychelles would like to take this opportunity to thank all clients, partners, friends and staff members for their undying loyalty and contributions over the years.
