Remco Althuis, Chief Executive Officer of Air Seychelles said: “COVID-19 was non-existent when S7-PTI was ordered 18 months ago and we do understand that right now it is a critical time for all airlines globally, including for Air Seychelles.
 
“As the older plane is leaving the fleet, having a new generation of fuel efficient aircraft is very important in order to safeguard the economic operations once the business resumes back to normal. It is for that reason that it was important, that we took delivery of the new A320neo aircraft and Pti Merl Dezil will be part of Air Seychelles’ fleet of two A320neos".
 
“Whilst the demand for air travel and tourism to the Seychelles has significantly decreased due to COVID-19, the aircraft will be put to work to maintain strategic air links to the Seychelles, ensuring that critical supplies can still come in and it will also be available for repatriation flights should those be required.”
