As Air Seychelles ceases direct flights to Seychelles we look at the the emerging alternatives
Air Seychelles has announced over the last couple of months that it will cease the vast majority of its International flights with only the Johannesburg in South Africa and Mauritius routes surviving, the remainder ceasing by January 10 2012 – it is a our understanding that all existing reservations will have been transferred to other airlines so it appears that whilst a few will have been inconvenienced, few if any, will have lost out.
So how do you fly to Seychelles during 2012 and onwards? Easily is the answer.
Direct flights to Seychelles from Europe are being reintroduced by other airlines from the following:
Moscow Transaero Airline
Paris Air Austral
Milan Blue Panorama Airlines
Rome Blue Panorama Airlines
whilst ONE STOP flights to Seychelles are available from most major and regional airports via a number of important regional hubs:
Etihad via Abu Dhabi
Emirates via Dubai
Ethiopian via Addis Ababa
Qatair via Doha
No doubt more alternatives will reveal themselves in the near future
