Seychelles welcomes the news published in Air Transport News on Blue Panorama Airlines and Alitalia moving to integration of the two companies ( The Seychelles Tourism Board has welcomed the news published in Air Transport News where it was conformed that the Board of Directors of Alitalia–Compagnia Aerea Italiana has given the green light to the project for integration with Blue Panorama Airlines, on the basis of the contents of the memorandum of understanding signed by the two companies.

The integration project, it was reported in the Air Transport News, is consistent with the national and international consolidation processes underway in the air transport sector. Such processes are meant to enhance the industrial size of carriers, increase their competitiveness, and develop their ability to cope with the evolution of the macroeconomic context.

Through the synergies made possible by the integration, there will be increased opportunities for Italian customers, and Italy will more easily attract international

Alitalia and Blue Panorama have synergy potentials and are complementary with regard to product specialization, network design, and served market segments. Founded in January 2009, the Alitalia Group is the main Italian carrier, with operational bases in Rome, Milan, Turin, Venice, Bari, and Catania. They have a fleet of 144 aircraft and have on their books around 25 million transported passengers in 2011.

For the Seychelles Tourism Board, this announcement follows the recent confirmation that Blue Panorama Airlines would be launching their inaugural flight to the paradise islands of the Seychelles effective February 14. The service will be one flight per week initially and then move to two weekly flights from July.

“We are delighted with this announcement that sees Blue Panorama Airlines consolidate itself through its integration with Alitalia. Panorama Airlines is now a partner of Seychelles and will be operating a NONSTOP direct service to Seychelles from February 14. Italy is the second most important tourist market for Seychelles when visitor arrival numbers are taken into consideration, and seeing the consolidation of one of our partners is good news, as it will help in their own networking in Italy and in Europe as a whole,” said Alain St.Ange, as he wished Blue Panorama Airline continued success.
