Following the recent arrival of Air Seychelles’ first Airbus A330-200, the airline has announced that it will double its Johannesburg services to four return flights a week from 1 December.
Cramer Ball, Air Seychelles’ Chief Executive Officer, said: “In March, we announced that we would double our services to Johannesburg when our second A330 is delivered next year, but because of strong bookings from South Africa and a projected boom over the busy holiday season, we reassessed the schedule to find a way to increase our frequency sooner.
“Air Seychelles will now operate a turn-around Johannesburg service in December, ensuring better air support during weekends for the increasing number of tourists coming to the islands.”
The new frequencies will operate on Saturdays and Mondays departing Mahe at 7.30 am arriving in Johannesburg at 10.40am. The return flight then departs at 12.10pm, arriving in Mahe at 7.10pm.
