Air Seychelles to establish direct connection with Kazakhstan this summer

Posted 20 July 2021 · Add Comment

Air Seychelles will mark another historic milestone this August by operating for the first time into Kazakhstan's largest metropolis and most popular cultural hub, Almaty.

The series of new charter flights, to be operated by the airline’s A320neo jetliner, is expected to bring over 500 visitors to the Seychelles, each spending 10 nights on a combination of the main island, Mahe, along with Praslin and La Digue, taking part in various fun, authentic and safe activities.

For this new market to Seychelles, the initial phase is to introduce the national flag carrier and destination Seychelles to the people of Kazakhstan. After this awareness and interest is built, a more long-term series of flights will commence in October for the winter months.

The first flight set to depart Almaty International Airport on 2 August proceeding over 9 hours is expected to land at the Seychelles International Airport by mid-morning on 3 August, 2021.
