Airline Updates: Etihad Airways and Air Seychelles

Etihad Airways and Air Seychelles Amend Schedules to bring Abu Dhabi - Seychelles Service to Double Daily

Etihad Airways has increased its service between Abu Dhabi and Seychelles from four flights per week to daily to give guests more choice and greater flexibility when travelling to and from Seychelles. Starting on 1 July 2015, the total number of return flights operated by Etihad Airways and Air Seychelles between Abu Dhabi and Seychelles increased to 14 per week. 

These double-daily services provide more convenient options for guests travelling between the UAE and Seychelles, and to key destinations across the Gulf region, Middle East, Europe, North America, Indian Subcontinent, North Asia, and Australia. 

Passengers from European destinations such as Berlin, Frankfurt, London, and Paris will now benefit from two daily options to travel to Seychelles via Etihad Airways’ hub in Abu Dhabi. 

Kevin Knight, Etihad Airways’ Chief Strategy and Planning Officer, said: “The change in Etihad Airways’ flight schedule means that our guests now have the choice and flexibility of a consistent double-daily service between Abu Dhabi and Seychelles and better onward flight connections across our global network.”

Etihad Airways commenced services between Abu Dhabi and Mahé in the Seychelles in November 2011, while Air Seychelles began operations in March 2012. The airlines now operate two-class Airbus A320 (16 Business Class and 120 Economy Class) aircraft offering more than 3,800 seats on the route each week. 

New schedule for flights from Abu Dhabi to Seychelles, effective 1 July 2015: 

 All departures and arrivals are listed in local time.
