Seychelles aviation news update – Delivery of second Twin Otter DHC – 600 deferred


Information was received from sources close to and at the national airline of the Seychelles, that a second brand new Twin Otter DHC-600 earmarked for purchase will not, for the time being, be delivered while the restructuring of ‘HM’ is ongoing. The first aircraft, the long round the world ferry flight to the Seychelles covered here on a day to day basis a few months ago, is in service on the domestic routes of Air Seychelles to Praslin and other islands, and for charters, and it is understood that existing turboprop aircraft will remain on the fleet for some more time to come to have sufficient aircraft capacity available to operate  the network of scheduled domestic flights, in particular when the main international airlines arrive and depart from Mahe’s airport, besides the regular charters the airline undertakes for tourist groups.
