Air Seychelles to Fly Paris Again

Air Seychelles has announced it will launch flights to Paris-Orly, subject to regulatory approval, as part of a significant expansion to its international schedule from  February 2014, airline will operate twice-weekly flights between Seychelles and Paris, via Abu Dhabi, with an A330-200.

Seychelles Minister for Home Affairs and board chairman, Joel Morgan said: “Our Abu Dhabi service schedule offers one of the fastest routes for travel between Seychelles and major European destinations, and has built a solid position in this important historical market.”

Currently, the island carrier codeshares on 14 flights a week to Paris-CDG with Etihad Airways. Air Seychelles also unveiled a new regional network plan, subject to approvals, which will see expansion of its operations in the Indian Ocean by the end of 2014, following the delivery of an A319.

The plan includes the launch of regional services to Antananarivo, Reunion and Mumbia.

Services to Abu Dhabi will be increased from seven to 11 per week, offering a double daily service with Etihad Airways. The carrier will also operate three return flights a week to Hong Kong and Johannesburg.  Altogether, weekly international services will nearly double from 16 to 29 flights a week.

Cramer Ball, CEO, commented: “The new schedule will see Air Seychelles spread its regional footprint and build a solid position that will establish us as the carrier of choice in the Indian Ocean.”
