Seychelles aviation news – Air Seychelles publishes new summer schedules


Air Seychelles has published their latest time table for international services, available via their website on
Following the withdrawal of all European and Asian services at the end of 2011 and in early 2012, the remaining destinations for Air Seychelles now are Mauritius and Johannesburg, where during the validity of the summer schedule two flights each are planned. Mauritius will be served on Tuesday and Saturday each week, using one of the remaining B767-300 aircraft while Johannesburg flights will be operated each Friday and Sunday.
The schedule will come into effect by March and run through October, but it is expected that sometime around August a new B737-800 will join the Air Seychelles fleet and then be used for these flights, and probably the planned new destinations on the African continent.
Air Seychelles domestic services from Mahe International Airport to the island of Praslin continue uninterrupted as do on demand charters to other outlying islands with airfields, where the airlines 3 Twin Otter and 1 Short 360 can safely land.
