Air Seychelles airbus A330-200 to debut with enhanced livery


30-January-2013

Vallée de Mai’s new livery was created in Abu Dhabi Aircraft Technologies’ painting hall

The Air Seychelles name now adorns the underbelly, for brand visibility from the ground while the aircraft is in flight. 

The aircraft is named in honour of Vallée de Mai, the Seychelles’ second Unesco World Heritage Site, which is located on the island of Praslin and is home to the famous coco de mer, the world’s largest seed and symbol of the Seychelles.

On the new aircraft, the Unesco status is included alongside the Vallée de Mai name, visible to passengers upon boarding.

Cramer Ball, Air Seychelles’ chief executive officer, said: "Air Seychelles’ livery turns heads, both in the sky and on the ground, embodying the beauty of the islands and the liveliness of the culture.

Our livery is based on the pristine ecosystem of the Seychelles and our support for a greener Seychelles. With these changes, our aircraft will be even more distinctive. 

“I’m particularly proud of the name given to the aircraft, as this year, Vallée the Mai observes its 30th year as a Unesco World Heritage site.

We are thrilled, as the national airline, to promote these symbols of the Seychelles’ environmental commitment.”
