The six Twin Otters fly a dense network of services around the Seychelles, with almost 217,000 passengers carried on them last year.
The Twin Otters provide a vital link in the Seychelles' tourism industry transporting visitors from the main hub at Mahe to the various islands.
Air Seychelles is the nation’s largest employer. A total of 92 employees are pilots, two-thirds of whom are Seychellois, and overall 99% of staff are nationals.
Air Seychelles is returning to Europe this summer with its A330s, reflecting a growing tourist trade.
Both A330s were formerly operated by Jet Airways, which like Air Seychelles is an Etihad partner airline.
