MAKING HISTORY

Air Seychelles has purchased three Viking Air DHC-6 Twin Otter Series 400 aircraft, in a deal which will see the iconic island carrier renew its domestic fleet. The new aircraft will be used for services between Mahe and Praslin, as well as other islands in the archipelago, including Bird, Denis and Fregate.
All three aircraft deliveries are scheduled for mid-2015, with an option for earlier delivery if aircraft become available.á The airline currently operates one Viking Air DHC-6 Twin Otter Series 400 and three Series 300 aircraft.
The new aircraft will be manufactured at Viking Air\’s production facility in Victoria, British Columbia. Previously, Twin Otters were manufactured by de Havilland Canada, and of the 850 built since the mid-1960s, more than 600 are still in active service around the world.
