Advancing regional aviation and tourism cooperation

24-April-2015
With the aim of adopting a more sustainable approach to the development of air transport in the Indian Ocean region and Africa, 35 member states of the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) met recently in Madagascar.

The meeting discussed the sustainability of air transport development in Africa and focused on more cooperation between the aviation and tourism sectors.

The member states, including Seychelles met in Antananarivo, upon the invitation of the Malagasy Civil Aviation Authority and their Ministry of Tourism, Transport and Meteorology, in the presence of representatives of the ICAO, who were spearheading the meeting.

Since Seychelles has taken a leading role in improving air connectivity in the region, pushing for the one flight per day between regional Indian Ocean islands, the presence of delegates from our aviation sectors at the meeting was very significant. The Seychelles delegation was headed by Seychelles Civil Aviation Authority chief executive Gilbert Faure.

M. ViroleauLa société de croisière ‘Costa’ a confirmé son intention d’augmenter les rotations et donc le nombre de touristes qui viendront dans l’Océan Indien.

The Big Interview with SHTA's Kate Carolus

The Big Interview with SHTA's Kate Carolus

“It’s not just about arrivals”
Statistics show that visitor arrivals are on the mend, to the extent that the Tourism Minister is already talking of cap on tourism. With the fifth edition of the Carnaval International de Victoria behind us, we speak to the executive director of the Seychelles Hospitality and Tourism Association (SHTA) to get the view of the association's 160 members on the state of the country’s premier industry.
What are your thoughts on the carnival that just closed? Is it an effective marketing tool for Seychelles?
Making direct contact with the consumer through consumer advertising and marketing is very costly for a small destination, which is why in the past we have mostly promoted the destination via the professional travel trade. Whilst we do not know how much ten seconds on CNN costs, it must be quite a lot. If being visible is the idea, any major event such as this does help bring visibility to the Seychelles and, as such, it adds to our marketing penetration internationally. If continuous efforts are being put in and in the right areas it can develop to be “the” carnival in the Middle East Africa and Indian (MEAI) Region, which will attract more participants and can become a great driver in tourism.

Cancellation of ‘Seychelles Airlines’ trading name

Cancellation of ‘Seychelles Airlines’ trading name

09-May-2015
Registrar needs to provide justification

The Seychelles Registrar of Companies needs to provide justification as to why the trading name of a new airline company registered as 'Seychelles Airlines,' was cancelled.

On Thursday when she upheld the appeal of the company's owners against the registrar’s decision on the grounds that it was unlawful, Judge Fiona Robinson gave the Seychelles Registrar of Companies 10 days to provide justification for its decision.

“This Court makes order remitting the case back to the Registrar of Companies to give a determination in conformity with section 17 of the act within ten days of the date of this judgement, failing which the Registrar of Companies shall register the business name Seychelles Airlines in the register,” said Robinson when reading her decision.

Seychelles Airlines name valid

Post  Sirop14 on Thu Sep 24, 2015 6:37 pm

Seychelles Airlines name valid

24-September-2015
The original registration of the business name Seychelles Airlines is valid and the certificate of registration is valid and remains valid to date, judge Gustave Dodin said in his ruling yesterday.
Justice Dodin has also ordered the Registrar of Companies to restore the business name Seychelles Airlines BRN B8412697-5 to the Register of Business Names forthwith.
The appellant company, Intershore Aviation Limited, had filed an application for registration of the business name ‘Seychelles Airlines’ on August 21, 2013.
On August, 22, 2013, the Registrar of Companies, who is also the Registrar of Business Names and Registrar-General, issued the Certificate of Registration number B8412697-5 together with a letter acknowledging the registration and a stamped copy of the application.
Intershore Aviation Limited subsequently proceeded to set up its business which is an airline operating business trading as Seychelles Airlines. By letter dated September 4, 2013, the Seychelles Civil Aviation Authority (SCAA) confirmed the designators for Seychelles Airlines being SCH for the three letter designator and Ocean Bird as the telephony designator.
By letter containing two dates of November 26, 2013 and November 27, 2013, the chief executive of SCAA Gilbert Faure wrote to the Registrar-General complaining about the registered name Seychelles Airlines.
The argument of the respondent was that the business Seychelles Airlines would be in direct competition with Air Seychelles hence unless it drops the word Seychelles from its name, it would have the effect of misleading and confusing the public, clients, stakeholders and regulators.
But Judge Dodin explained that neither Air Seychelles Limited, nor the government of Seychelles have raised any objection to the name Seychelles Airlines since its registration on August 22, 2013 to date.
“This can only lead me to conclude that those persons leading Air Seychelles Limited and the government of Seychelles are in tune with the basic competition and free trade norms,” said Judge Dodin.
He added that the Registration of Business Names Act makes no provision that the Registrar can request a change of name or cancel a registered name on the ground that there will be competition against an operating business.
In his judgment yesterday, Judge Dodin also said on the present appeal against the determination of the Registrar dated May 14, 2015 he finds:
a. that the reason advanced by the Registrar that the word Seychelles imports or suggests that the business enjoys the patronage of the government has not been established and is not sustainable or reasonable;
that the reasons advanced by the Registrar that the name Seychelles Airlines is likely to mislead the public by virtue of the word Seychelles being present and which might convey the impression that it is a subsidiary of Air Seychelles have not been established and are not reasonable or sustainable:
that the reasons advanced by the Registrar that in the Registrar’s opinion, the name would confuse clients, the public and airline stakeholders and regulators with the impression that Air Seychelles and Seychelles Airlines are not independent, have not been established and are not reasonable or sustainable:
that the Registrar failed to apply the Registrar’s mind judiciously or at all to factors that were necessary to consider in exercising the discretion given under section 17(1)(d) of the Registration of Business Names Act and therefore reached a conclusion that was so unreasonable and that no person in the position of the Registrar would have otherwise reached had these factors been properly considered; and
that the Registrar acted on the basis that the Registrar was only ordered to give reasons for the decision to cancel the registration and failed to reconsider the whole determination afresh by considering all the factors judiciously and coming to a reasonable, logical and judicious conclusion consistent with the provisions of section 17 of the Registration of Business Names Act.
The matter relating to the trading name of the new airline was first brought before the Court in December 2013, and the dispute had stalled the company's attempts to obtain an Air Operator's Certificate (AOC) from local aviation authorities.
Intershore Aviation was contesting demands made by the Seychelles Registrar that the airline’s trading name should be changed to exclude the word ‘Seychelles.’ The company argued that they had already been legally approved and registered by the registrar under the name ‘Seychelles Airlines’ since August 2013.
Section 17 of the Registration of Business Names Act of 1972 makes provision for the registrar to refuse to register any firm, individual or corporation carrying on business under a business name based on a number of reasons.

12 Seychellois graduate from Etihad Airways world class training programme

12 Seychellois graduate from Etihad Airways world class training programme

08-October-2015

Air Seychelles has celebrated the graduation of 12 Seychellois nationals who have successfully completed career development programmes with Etihad Airways.
The group of four graduate managers, seven cadet engineers and one cadet pilot were presented with certificates at a ceremony held at the prestigious Al Raha Beach Hotel in Abu Dhabi by James Hogan, president and chief executive of Etihad Airways.
Roy Kinnear, chief executive of Air Seychelles, said: “We congratulate each of our 12 new graduates on completing their training with Etihad Airways, which has equipped them with the skills, experience and qualifications to take up key positions at Air Seychelles.
“This group represents the next generation of Seychellois leaders in aviation and to see them do so well is a very proud moment for us all.”
Graduate managers Elsie Hurst, Elvis Uranie, Joel Bacharie and Magalie Essack are the first cohort of Seychellois trainees to complete the Graduate Management Development Programme (GMDP), a 21-month workplace learning course where members receive on-the-job training and are rotated through key Etihad Airways departments before focusing on a specialised airline function.
The graduates started the course in 2012 and have now returned to management level positions at Air Seychelles.
Mr Kinnear added: “As the national airline of Seychelles, one of our top priorities is to train and develop home-grown talent across all areas of the airline business and we are delighted to partner with Etihad Airways to achieve this important goal.
“Etihad Airways operates some of the most advanced aviation educational facilities in the world and provides our graduate managers, engineers and pilots with unrivalled career development opportunities.”
Graduating engineers Marios Desylva, Marlon Nourrice, Antoine François, Clifton Leon, Damien Azemia, Erol Agricole and Herve Toulon started the cadet engineer programme in 2012 and completed two years of classroom training at Al Ain in 2014.
The graduates are currently gaining experience in aircraft maintenance at the Abu Dhabi International Airport following which they will join Air Seychelles in the technical operations department, working on its fleet of modern Airbus A320 and A330 aircraft.
The ceremony also saw Kevin Kumar graduate from the cadet pilot programme. Kevin completed 750 hours of classroom sessions and 205 hours of flight training in single and multi-engine aircraft and is now flying with Air Seychelles as a first officer on the twin otter aircraft which is operated domestically.
This is the first of numerous graduate management programmes aiming to embed Seychellois talent back into management positions in Air Seychelles in the years ahead. Currently, Air Seychelles has 13 graduates undergoing training in Abu Dhabi and are at various stages of their training. Areas in which graduate managers will specialise are: corporate communications, HR, IT, e-commerce, finance, catering and product, revenue management, airport operations, internal audit and commercial sales.
The graduation was attended by senior management from Air Seychelles led by Abdulmohsen Al Sayegh, Air Seychelles chief financial officer.
