SKYTRAX FOUR STAR AIR SEYCHELLES TAKES INFLIGHT AMENITY KITS TO THE NEXT LEVEL
(Posted 31st October 2016)
Air Seychelles, the national airline of the Republic of Seychelles, has launched stylish new Business and Economy Class amenity kits, as well as fun packs for kids.
The new kits are the result of collaboration with Galileo Products and have been designed to reflect the flair and joie de vivre of the Seychelles culture.
The new Business Class kits contain a dental pack, eye mask, socks, earplugs and premium skincare items from Scaramouche + Fandango, an exclusive British brand which was chosen for its luxurious range of amenities, specifically developed for inflight use. The skincare items include a rich honey lip balm and moisturising hydrator that are high in natural ingredients and which are housed in a versatile neoprene bag that doubles as an iPad mini case and can be enjoyed post-flight.
A new Economy Class kit, comprising earplugs, an Air Seychelles branded eye mask, dental kit and socks, has also been introduced and is presented in a soft red drawstring bag that can be reused for storing sunglasses.
Not forgetting younger travellers, the newly-designed kid’s packs feature a memorable Air Seychelles mascot in a book filled with fun games and activities, as well as wax crayons and a puzzle. They are packed in a large, water-resistant drawstring bag that is the perfect beach companion.
Roy Kinnear, Chief Executive Officer of Air Seychelles, said when announcing the new line: ‘The introduction of these kits will further enhance the flying experience with Air Seychelles and provide our guests with the essentials they need for a comfortable journey to and from our islands.They have been designed to reflect our vibrant creole spirit, which underlies everything we do at the airline, and are tailored specifically for the requirements of our guests, from business travellers to families flying with small children. As an environmentally-conscious airline, we wanted to make sure that these kits are reusable, which is why they double-up as holiday items such as beach bags for kids and sunglass pouches. We are delighted to work together with Galileo Products and are confident these new kits have moved our guest experience one notch higher, strengthening our position as the leading airline in the Indian Ocean‘.
Ian Linaker, Chief Executive Officer of Galileo Products, commented too on the launch, saying: ‘We appreciate that every aspect of the Seychellois customer experience has to be carefully considered in order to meet the growing expectations of the modern traveller and the high standards set by Air Seychelles. With this in mind we have worked closely together to deliver a customised offering with a full complement of onboard essentials, thus ensuring ultimate comfort at 37,000ft‘.
Air Seychelles has in recent times expanded their number of flights from Mahe to Johannesburg, Mauritius, Madagascar and Mumbai and is also looking at upping frequencies on their nonstop service to and from Paris.
Last year did Skytrax, the most credible airline ranking system, award Air Seychelles four stars, a resounding affirmation of how flying the Creole Spirit has translated into concrete measures.
