INVESTIGATION ONGOING INTO INCIDENT INVOLVING 2 AIRCRAFTS

An inquiry has been launched to determine the circumstances which led to an Air Seychelles Air bus and a Twin otter aircraft to be at close in-flight proximity on Friday 20th January.

The incident was reported at around 10:20am shortly after the take off of a domestic twin otter aircraft on its way to Praslin Island with 15 passengers onboard an A320 with 97 guests going to Mauritius.

Chief Executive Officer of the Air Seychelles, Roy Kinnear said a potential disastrous situation was avoided following the A320 flight deck crew’s immediate response. “Upon departure, the flight deck crew on the A320 took the decision and the preventive action to increase the distance between the 2 aircrafts. The A320 went to the right in a curve as per normal procedures and there was no aircraft damage.”

Mr. Kinnear highlighted the national airline’s strict adherence to safety. “In light of this, how can we further improve the aspect of safety? You can never go wrong with safety. If you don’t have a safe airline, you don’t have an airline.” 

The investigation is being conducted by the Seychelles Civil Aviation Authority with the full participation of the Air Seychelles.

INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL LAUNCHES SOLAR PANEL ARRAY

The International School of Seychelles has officially launched its Solar Panel Array.

A solar panel array combines several solar panels to generate electricity. The installation generates 99 kilowatt of power per hour for the school and it is the second largest such installation in Seychelles after the Central Bank.

Speaking about the school’s use of the system so far, the Chairperson of the school’s board, Laura Valabjhi said, “It’s been a rainy month but we’ve produced electricity and we’ve fed that into the grid because we were not using that much of it because we were on holidays so we’re very happy with it.”
