Air Seychelles Launches Low Altitude Scenic Flights

Air Seychelles has launched low altitude scenic flights that offer a bird’s eye view of some of the most beautiful spots of the Seychelles’ main island, Mahe.

The 30-minute flight departs from Seychelles International Airport and takes passengers on a tour of either North Mahe or South Mahe.

On the North Mahe tour for example, Cerf Island, Moyenne and Ste Anne islands will be visible to the right. The flight then continues past the capital of Victoria, following the coastline around the northern point of Mahe to Beau Vallon beach. Heading past Anse Major, the Baie Ternay marine park and Port Launay, the flight provides views of the Morne Seychellois national park, before circling back at Grand Anse beach.

Air Seychelles’ Head of Sales for the Home Market, Mrs. Kathleen Payet said the scenic flights, which have to be booked 24 hours in advance, will be sold on a charter basis instead of selling individual seats as is the case for normal flights.

“We are targeting large groups who before had to charter two or three helicopters for such scenic flights, including guests from cruise ship who are very eager to embark on such experiences,” said Mrs Payet.

The scenic flights are operated with a Twin Otter DHC-6 400 aircraft configured with 19 seats of which 11 are window seats. The flights are available daily between 13:30 and 15:00 based on demand.

Air Seychelles’ Chief Executive Roy Kinnear said, “Flying at a low altitude on a Twin Otter aircraft, our service will provide breath-taking views of many famous sights and landmarks of north Mahe, from stunning beaches to the verdant rolling hills of the national park, all framed by the Indian Ocean.”
