Air Mauritius starts operations to Seychelles

Posted 1 June 2019 · Add Comment

Air Mauritius will be starting operations to Seychelles as from 02 July 2019. The flights will be operated twice weekly by the Airbus A319, offering 16 Business class and 108 Economy class seats.

 CEO Somas Appavou stated “This new destination will reinforce our regional service and provide enhanced connectivity onto our global network. Our two countries are world class tourist destinations but as islands we also share similar challenges like the size of our home markets and our geographical remoteness. Bringing our islands closer through better air connectivity is key to overcoming such challenges.”

Flight schedules for the Mauritius-Seychelles service have been designed to optimize connecting possibilities for passengers through the Mauritius hub. This includes the flux of business and leisure traffic to and from Madagascar, Reunion, South Africa and Australia. Reinforced air services between Mauritius and Seychelles also offer the possibility to combine these two destinations into two-centre holiday packages.
