Shannon Ireland. May, 2011 // As their mission statement indicates Air Seychelles aims “to be the best service on the Indian Ocean.” In order to meet that target they set out to ensure they had the best maintenance management system in place to meet their needs.

This was an extensive selection process and today Volartec are delighted to announce that Air Seychelles have selected Alkym® Management and Control System for Aircraft Maintenance as their preferred system.

Robert Chong-Seng, Head of Technical Support for Air Seychelles was the project leader and summed up the reasons for selecting the Volartec / Alkym solution by saying “it is intuitive, uncluttered and a very well designed and implemented software with outstanding features. It has functions comparable to more expensive software systems but at affordable and fair prices.”

Air Seychelles will begin the implementation project in late June for the 10 concurrent user licence when the following modules will GO LIVE within a 5 week project: Planning; Engineering; Maintenance Control; Purchasing & Repairs, Reliability; Inventory; Receiving & Shipping; Production Kiosk; Technical Library and M-transfer. This project will see Volartec send a team of three Alkym experts on site to Victoria on the island of Mahe.

Robert went on to comment that “Volartec is dedicated to continuous improvement which is always a good sign of a good supplier. We are especially impressed with the reporting features such as the analysis services, pivot tables etc., which will bring lots of value to the department’s processes and the company as a whole. It is a very easily customizable system which can be tailored to meet almost every requirement. The project implementation time is much shorter than the competitors.¨

On this latest addition to the Volartec growing customer base John Barry, VP Business Development was proud to say “It is now just 12 months since we opened the office In Ireland to serve the EMEA region and build on the already established market in Latin America. With this announcement Air Seychelles becomes the seventh airline to select Alkym in this region alone. When you bring a product as strong as Alkym at the price point that airlines consider to be fair then this list will continue to grow.””


In operation since 1978, Air Seychelles has evolved from a purely domestic operation into a professional and highly respected National Carrier. With its HQ at the International Airport on the island of Mahe they have a current fleet of 9 aircraft. The domestic fleet consists of 3 Twin Otter and 1 Shorts 360 while the international fleet has 5 Boeing 767 aircraft. Next year will see the arrival of two new Boeing 787 Dreamliner’s.
