Posted 20 February 2017 · Add Comment

South African Airways (SAA) has announced a new code-share route with Air Seychelles from Seychelles to Durban.

Air Seychelles will be introducing direct services between Seychelles and Durban effective 30 March 2017. The flight will operate twice a week on Thursdays and Saturdays and is already open for sale.

The code-share partnership between South African Airways and Air Seychelles was established back in October 2013 with SAA as a marketing carrier between Johannesburg and Seychelles - Praslin Island operated by Air Seychelles.

“As South African Airways, we value our current relationship with Air Seychelles. We look forward to strengthening this partnership and creating a seamless travel experience for our customers travelling to various destinations on the African continent and the Indian Ocean subcontinent,” said Aaron Munetsi, SAA’s acting chief commercial officer.

Air Seychelles has been a marketing carrier on the following domestic services operated by South African Airways: Cape Town, Durban, Port Elizabeth and East London.

“The ties between South Africa and Seychelles are strong and evident for everyone to see, linking leisure, trade, commerce and visiting family and friends opportunities. Building on these strong ties and the existing five weekly services between Seychelles and Johannesburg, Air Seychelles has taken the commitment to start the twice-weekly operation to Durban on 30 March, 2017.

“Our code-share relationship with SAA is an incredibly strong partnership and we are extremely pleased to work with the SAA team in developing our code-share relationships even further, for the mutual benefit of both airlines.  We are confident these air links will bring our countries closer and contribute to the development of our respective economies and tourism industries,” said Roy Kinnear, chief executive officer, Air Seychelles.
