Abu Dhabi, Feb 3: Air Seychelles Friday announced direct flights from Seychelles’ largest island of Mahe to Abu Dhabi.
This follows last week’s announcement that UAE’s Etihad Airways will form a strategic partnership by taking a 40 percent stake in Air Seychelles.
The two weekly return flights will be inaugurated March 12. These flights will operate on a Boeing 767-300ER series aircraft, in a two-class configuration, offering 844 seats each week. The new flights are on sale from Friday.
Cramer Ball, CEO of Air Seychelles, said: “The Seychelles have already proven to be a hugely popular holiday destination amongst Etihad Airways guests. With these additional two Air Seychelles weekly flights, we look forward to successfully serving the route.
