Air SeychellesRecently, Air Seychelles have decided to reduce seat capacity to boost future growth. The Seychelles Tourism Board or STB however is quite depressed by this choice as the company signifies that this move has been done to adjust its European network affecting Germany and France. Nonetheless, Air Seychelles remains quite convinced that the tourism market and its performance will remain unhampered in 2017.

On this Monday, the national carrier declared that it will postpone its twice-weekly flights which were scheduled to Düsseldorf from September 10th and decrease simultaneously its Paris operation from four to thrice-weekly flights from September 12th onward.

Explaining the commercial decisions, the Chief Executive of Air Seychelles Roy Kinnear expressed that the route to Düsseldorf which was undergoing an in-depth review, started in March this year had been demonstrated unsustainable. The Chief Executive also explained that low demand for air travel out of France in terms of Paris flight was another cause of the decision.

In a statement, Air Seychelles Chairman Jean Weeling-Lee said: “Due to year on year increase of cost of fuel, an extremely competitive aviation market in Europe, and the high number of significant airlines already serving Seychelles though their connecting hubs, it unfortunately results in Air Seychelles being forced to consolidate these services.”

She further added “The airline would have also been key during peak holiday periods where we are in competition with the other destinations for seats on airlines that go through the connecting hubs.”
