Etihad Airways and Air Seychelles to Increase Abu Dhabi - Seychelles Flights

Travel News Asia Videos Podcasts Latest Travel News Asia Friday, 28 November 2014

Etihad Airways and Air Seychelles have increased flights between Abu Dhabi and Seychelles, offering guests more choice and greater flexibility when travelling to and from Mah in the Republic of Seychelles.

Effective 1 December 2014, the new schedule will see Etihad Airways add one service per week and Air Seychelles a further two services per week, bringing the combined number of weekly return flights to Seychelles from ten to thirteen.

The new schedule will provide an additional 217 weekly connections to key destinations across the Middle East, Indian Subcontinent, North Asia, and Australia, including Beijing, Shanghai, Tokyo and Seoul.

The change in flight schedule comes as part of the airlines efforts to move towards a consistent double daily service between Abu Dhabi and Seychelles in cooperation with our equity partner Air Seychelles, said Kevin Knight, Etihad Airways Chief Strategy and Planning Officer. The new schedule will greatly benefit business and leisure travellers, ensuring they have more convenient travel options when flying between the UAE and Seychelles, and better onward flight connections on our global network.

Etihad Airways commenced services between Abu Dhabi and Mah in the Seychelles in November 2011, while Air Seychelles began operations in March 2012.

The airlines operate a combination of two-class Airbus A330 (18 Business Class and 236 Economy Class) and A320 (16 Business Class and 120 Economy Class) aircraft on the route.
