Air Seychelles domestic operations back to normal schedule

Air Seychelles resumed all scheduled domestic flights between Mahé and Praslin on Saturday.

All flights between the two islands were suspended on Friday August 19, 2016 as a result of the tragic accident involving Air Seychelles pilot Aubrey Quatre.

In addition to the scheduled services Air Seychelles added supplementary return flights between Mahe and Praslin on Saturday to accommodate all guests who may have wanted to travel to Praslin but who were unable to do so on Friday.

Air Seychelles has apologised once again to all passengers who were affected by the disruption.

Air Seychelles captain Quatre died on Friday after being involved in a fatal ground accident which happened at around 11.30am at the Domestic Terminal of the Seychelles Airport.

The Seychelles Civil Aviation Authority (SCAA) was informed at 11.33am of the incident involving the Air Seychelles staff and a Twin Otter plane.

Three paramedics from the Airport Fire and Rescue Services (AFRS) watch room were sent on scene.

Captain Quatre, 27, was an experienced pilot on Air Seychelles Twin Otter fleet and had been with the company since October 15, 2012 and gained his command on the Twin Otter in April 2015. He was born on September 25, 1988.
