The year 2022, according to Air Seychelles, was marked by hard work, perseverance and resilience. The airline claimed it can now look back on its performance for 2022 with a more upbeat attitude after recovering from the crippling impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, which brought uncertainties to the aviation industry.
All of Air Seychelles’ former destinations have been reopened and the airline has also added new locations such as, Almaty in Kazakhstan. A significant focus on charters and ACMI (Aircraft, Crew, Management and Insurance) helps them to balance any risk related to the economy, high oil prices or any COVID-19 related travel downtime.
A320NEO aircraft operated by Air Seychelles covered 35 destinations in 2022 through charter flights, in addition to its scheduled network of Mumbai, Mauritius, Johannesburg, and Tel Aviv. They included, among others, London, Beijing, Bucharest, and Dakar. In contrast to 2021, when there were 27,319 passengers on 361 flights, Air Seychelles flew 74,272 people on 851 flights from January to December, a 172 percent increase in passengers. As of the end of December 2022, Johannesburg remained the airline’s most lucrative market, with Tel Aviv, Israel, a close second.
Even though renting a car at the airport at the last minute may be convenient, airport fees frequently make this convenience expensive. Organising your car rental in advance and having them meet you at the airport will always work to your advantage. For the convenience of travellers, Kreol Cars provides free airport pickup and has designated parking spots at the airport where you can simply pick up or drop off your rental car. No fuss, no hassle and most of all, no unexpected costs.
Late in December 2022, the seasonal route between Almaty, in central Asia, and the Seychelles, which was planned to run until March 2023, was launched by Kazakhstan’s national carrier, making its presence felt in the country. The winter series includes 18 round-trip flights with a capacity of more than 6,000 passengers.
The cargo department at Air Seychelles had a significant boost in 2022, with a rise of 35% in total cargo handled. It came to 10,043 tonnes overall as opposed to 7,430 tonnes in 2021.
