Passengers currently flying with Air Seychelles from Paris, Rome, Milan or London to Mahé can look forward to a special highlight: for the first time, paintings by a local artist will be displayed on board the B767 long-haul aircraft. Air Seychelles is also revamping its fleet for regional and domestic routes and has put a brand new Twin Otter into service.
For Air Seychelles, the typical Creole flair does not only begin on the islands, but already during the flight. Currently, the national airline of the Seychelles is supporting the local artist George Camille and is showing four of his works on board the Boeing B767 fleet, which brings passengers from Europe to Mahé. The exhibited pictures visually differentiate Economy and Pearl Class (Business Class). In addition, the Camille pictures also adorn the current Pearl Class menu cards on Air Seychelles' international flights. With this pilot project, the renowned airline wants to promote the cultural and scenic diversity of the Seychelles in a special way and invites other artists to participate.
George Camille has been deeply rooted in the island paradise of the Seychelles since his birth on Mahé. to this day, he has opened several studios and galleries of his own and has hosted numerous exhibitions. with his works, the painter does not follow clear lines, but rather focuses on the process and cycle of life and nature. Camille derives his style - captured in acrylic or watercolours - from the natural forms and colours of nature in the Seychelles.
Brand new Twin Otter in flight operation
Air Seychelles has increased its fleet for regional flights and recently put a brand-new Twin Otter into service. The DHC6-400 aircraft now flies under the name "Isle of Curieuse" and is the first aircraft with a new livery. In future, all aircraft used on regional flights will be painted in different colours to reflect the Creole flair of the island paradise. With the new Twin Otter, produced in Canada by Viking Air, the regional fleet will grow to four aircraft.
