Air Seychelles, has today announced that the national airline has started to implement a new service concept on board its jet fleet aircraft, as part of its ongoing sustainability efforts to gradually introduce new initiatives to tackle aluminium and plastic waste.

As part of the new service change, the airline has introduced a pre-plating concept in its Business Class Cabin specifically on its Bombay and Johannesburg routes. Besides enabling the airline to maintain a sustainable service offering on board its aircraft, the new concept will also substantially reduce the total waste collected on board the aircraft with total weight savings of around 50 kgs in
plastic and aluminium.

As part of its long term corporate social responsibility programme, the airline will continue to review its product and services to identify opportunities to introduce eco-friendly elements to further decrease the use of plastic and aluminium items throughout its operations.

Remco Althuis, Chief Executive Officer of Air Seychelles said: “At Air Seychelles we recognize the importance of reducing environmental footprint, hence we are constantly evaluating the way we conduct business to identify areas where we can implement eco-friendly measures.

“Globally airlines are being pressured to reduce their cabin waste as well as the use of plastic on board their aircraft and at Air Seychelles we are doing every effort to introduce new initiatives including service procedures company-wide not only to increase efficiencies but to also ensure that airline operates sustainably.”
