Air Seychelles About Air Seychelles

Air Seychelles was founded in 1977 when the government of Seychelles acquired and brought together small aircraft operators (Air Mahé and Inter Island Airways) into one company. The company is called Seychelles Airlines and its purpose is to provide inter-island services. It was not until the following year, in 1978, that the company adopted its current name, Air Seychelles. In 1983, Air Seychelles, which until then had operated domestic flights, launched its first long-haul flight. It connects Mahé to London, via Frankfurt.

In 2012, the company implemented a restructuring plan. Among the measures adopted are the reduction of its international network and the end of regular services to Europe. Conversely, Air Seychelles is increasing its frequencies to Abu Dhabi. The same year, the Emirati company Etihad Airways bought 40% of Air Seychelles’ capital. The two companies then forge a close partnership. Air Seychelles is back on the road to Europe thanks to the codeshare agreement concluded with Etihad Airways and the many other codeshare agreements signed with other airlines. The Seychelles company is thus present on 5 continents. However, in 2018, Air Seychelles announced a plan to transform its activities through increased importance given to its domestic network. In April of the same year, it closed its line connecting the Seychelles to Paris. In November 2019, a line to Tel Aviv was inaugurated.

The airline flies with a young and modern fleet in order to be able to offer passengers the greatest possible safety and comfort. Air Seychelles’ frequent flyer program is called Etihad Guest. There are three different levels of membership that determine the types of rewards.
