“Miss Seychelles…another world” airport tour

“Miss Seychelles…another world” airport tour ( “Miss Seychelles…another world,” Miss Agnes Gerry, was gracefully welcomed at the Seychelles Civil Aviation Authority (SCAA) headquarters yesterday morning, for an exclusive tour of the Seychelles International Airport.

Miss Gerry is not a total stranger at the airport, as she was working at the Air Seychelles Traffic Office prior to winning the prestigious pageant title. However, she knew little about the various services being offered by the Seychelles Civil Aviation Authority, and it was a pleasure and honor for the CEO and the SCAA executive team to warmly greet Miss Gerry and offer the crowned princess the chance to tour around the various facilities.

“I can’t remember when was the last time that we hosted a Miss Seychelles at SCAA, and it has been a very pleasant encounter; on behalf of our company I would like to wish you all the best during your reign, and for the international pageant,” said Mr. Gilbert Faure, who along with some members of the executive team took some time off from a very hectic day to greet Miss Gerry. Along with a representative from the Seychelles Tourism Board, she toured the Airside, stopping at some key locations along the way. Ms. Gerry’s stops included a guided tour of the Air Navigation Services division where she was able to assist with an international flight landing while in the control tower, and also familiarized herself with the Air Navigation Systems as well as the Flight Information Region (FIR).

Another action-packed stop was at the Airport Fire and Rescue Services (AFRS) station where officers on duty entertained their special guests with a fire rescue scenario and provided a much-appreciated joy ride for the beauty queen in one of AFRS’ fire truck. Additional locations included the Airport Fire Service jetty, South East Island DVOR, Northern Parking Area, and finally retreating to the SCAA Boardroom where the young beauty met the SCAA executive team.

Beaming with enthusiasm after her visit, “Miss Seychelles…another world” 2013 expressed her gratitude to all SCAA staff: “It was a very fruitful visit, and it has been really appreciated, I now have a broader understanding of what really happens at an airport, it really makes it easier once you have seen all the processes,” she said with satisfaction. At the end of her day at the SCAA, Miss Gerry thanked both the aviation authority and the Seychelles Tourism Board for giving her the chance to discover more in the world of aviation.

Miss Josie Michaud Payet from Air Seychelles Corporate Affairs was also present to greet Miss Gerry at the airport.
