To showcase the brand evolution in guest experience reflecting the beauty and warmth of the Seychelles Island, together with the arrival of the new Airbus A320neo aircraft, Air Seychelles similarly unveiled the new uniform design for its Cabin Crew members.
Inspired by the calm blue ocean of the archipelago, the stylish new uniform seen in the aisles of the modern A320neo and current A320ceo aircraft comprises of an elegant turquoise ensemble reflecting the natural landscape and surrounding of the island’s ecosystem.
The unique omate scarf and tie, designed by Alyssa Adams one of the best local artists in Seychelles, has been enthused by rays of the tropical sunlight glazing unto the flamboyant lily flowers gently floating on a rippled pond depicting the movement of the sea. Capturing the natural colours of nature, the vibrant scarf also portrays the unique values, warmth, and culture of the Seychellois hospitality.
The exquisite shades of the Air Seychelles brand palette has also been incorporated in both the Economy and Business Class Cabin of the new Airbus A320neo aircraft featuring 168 seats.
Economy Class features the Collins Aerospace Meridian seat, with a dark aqua 18-inch wide cushion for prime comfort. Each seat entails USB chargers as well as a high literature pocket. The Collins Aerospace MiQ seat was selected for Business Class, featuring burgundy seats paired with a sophisticated shade of grey, ergonomic reclining positions, a large storage space console and power outlets in each seat providing a superior passenger experience.
To bring a fresh and modern look into the aircraft, the Business and Economy Class seats have been adorned with a soft abstracted design of the tropical Hibiscus flower showcasing the important concept of conservation for a greener Seychelles.
The cabin of the Air Seychelles A320neo has been designed by LIFT Strategic Design, an airline design specialist agency experienced in brand, livery, cabin, uniform and customer experience development.
Charles Johnson, Chief Commercial Officer of Air Seychelles said: “As it is the first time in over 18 years that Air Seychelles has taken delivery of a brand new aircraft, we took the opportunity to completely immerse the sights, smell and tastes of the Seychelles into the interior design of the aircraft.
“These key elements allow our guests to experience our unique island culture from the moment they embark the aircraft and we are very happy with the work completed by LIFT Strategic Design, who took our concept and turned it into one of the most visually appealing, unique cabin environments on the globe.”
Daniel Baron, Managing Director of LIFT’s Strategic Design explained: “Our inspiration for the cabin was the stunning natural beauty of the Seychelles, and the spirit of its people, who are proud of their airline and the warm hospitality they provide.
“Our goal was to design a cabin that was unmistakably Air Seychelles, using its beautiful palette of blue, green and red.
“In Business Class, the elegant fabric with a 3D texture lend a high-end resort feeling, while in Economy Class, the colour contrast found in the sparkling sea of Seychelles create a vibrant tropical ambience. The front and rear walls of the cabin featuring an elegant gradient from yellow to blue evokes the rays of a tropical sun over the Seychelles crystal waters.
“My partner Aaron Yong and I are honoured to have worked with Air Seychelles and its highly professional team. Much passion went into the tiniest details of the cabin designs. With affection and gratitude, we hope the new cabins serve them well for many years.”
