Air Seychelles has won four highly-prized accolades at this year’s World Travel Awards (WTA), including the most coveted title of ‘Indian Ocean’s Leading Airline’ for the second consecutive year and ‘Indian Ocean's Leading Airline Lounge’ for the first time in history.

The airline has also been recognized as ‘Indian Ocean's Leading Airline - Business Class 2021’ and Indian Ocean's Leading Cabin Crew 2021' at the 28th edition of the annual World Travel Awards.

Sandy Benoiton, Air Seychelles acting chief executive officer said: “Winning the World Travel Awards including the title of 'Indian Ocean’s Leading Airline' for the second year running is definitely a remarkable achievement for Air Seychelles guests, partners and staff members.

"Very often Air Seychelles is outweighed by other larger carriers operating within the Indian Ocean and today having collected not one but four awards plus ‘Indian Ocean's Leading Airline Lounge 2021’ for the first time in history, further showcases the ability of the Air Seychelles team in delivering excellent industry-leading service.

“I salute the Air Seychelles team for their continued dedication, for flying the Seychelles colors high, for keeping families and friends connected during the most unprecedented time, without compromising on safety, service, performance excellence and most of all, for providing our guests with confidence to travel with Air Seychelles.”

Graham E. Cooke, Founder World Travel Awards, said: “Air Seychelles is setting the benchmark for aviation in the Indian Ocean. The airline’s commitment to improving customer service is unrivalled and I am delighted that both the travel trade and the public have acknowledged this excellence by voting it ‘Indian Ocean’s Leading Airline 2021’ and ‘Indian Ocean’s Leading Airline - Business Class 2021.”

The World Travel Awards established in 1993 to acknowledge, reward and celebrate excellence across all key sectors of the travel, tourism and hospitality industries, is recognized globally as the ultimate hallmark of industry excellence.

The Africa and Indian Ocean Winners Day 2021 was held today Thursday, 21 October.
