To better serve the route and accommodate the increase in passengers, Air
Seychelles will be operating over 20 flights on the route between Thursday 21st of
September and Friday 06th of October. The normal twice weekly commercial flights
will increase to five per week, and in addition there are several charters from Tel
Aviv to the Maldives and Mauritius also operating.

Charles Johnson, Chief Commercial Officer of Air Seychelles explains “Israel
remains an important market for Seychelles, with over 10,000 Israelis visiting the
destination so far this year. We anticipate carrying over 2,300 passengers to and
from Seychelles during this period, plus over 1,100 passengers to the Maldives &
Mauritius. This year we have even chartered additional aircraft to help us meet
the strong demand.”

To date, the national carrier has operated a total of 148 flights on the Seychelles-
Tel Aviv route, carrying over 10,000 passengers. The airline launched non-stop flights between Tel Aviv, the most populous city in Israel and the archipelagic islands of the Seychelles in November of 2019 and serves the city with twice- weekly flights in normal periods with additional flights at peak season. The forecast for the rest of 2023 remains strong despite the challenging economic environment being experienced in the region.
