Air Seychelles: Back in Time

Initially founded in 1978, the history of Air Seychelles dates back to 1971 when short airstrips were built on Frégate and Praslin. In 1977, the Government of Seychelles purchased several small aircraft operators and grouped them together under one company tasked with operating interisland air services. In 1978 the domestic airline was officially renamed “Air Seychelles”.

In 1983, the local government further expanded into the long-haul passenger enterprise and acquired a Douglas DC 10 aircraft while in the year 1987, two Boeing 707-320 were purchased. This has been done to remediate to the upheaving number of travellers visiting the Seychelles.
