MIAMI — Air Seychelles took delivery of its first Airbus A320neo (S7-VEV • MSN 8972) on August 1, 2019. The airline has officially become the first African carrier to operate an A320neo family aircraft.

The plane, the first one of two, has joined the airline’s fleet on a leasing agreement with CDB Aviation.

Each airplane will be powered with the CFM LEAP 1A engines, replacing the carrier’s 16-year-old A320ceos.
