Air Seychelles Expands Codeshare with Alitalia to South Africa & Madagascar

Air Seychelles has expanded its codeshare partnership with Alitalia to offer travellers convenient air connections to Madagascar and South Africa.

Under the agreement, Alitalia will place its AZ flight code on Air Seychelles’ four-times-aweek services to the Malagasy capital of Antananarivo and five flights to Johannesburg, South Africa’s biggest city. Subject to government approvals, the Italian flag carrier will also codeshare on Air Seychelles’ upcoming twice-weekly flights to Durban, set to commence on 30 March 2017.


Business and leisure travellers from Italy will be able to connect onto these services via Air Seychelles-operated flights from Abu Dhabi and Paris to Seychelles, using a single  combined ticket for the entire journey. 

Roy Kinnear, Chief Executive Officer of Air Seychelles, said: “Our partnership with Alitalia continues to open up attractive travel options for holidaymakers in Italy, who can now fly with  Air Seychelles to the fascinating island of Madagascar and South Africa.

Cramer Ball, Chief Executive Officer of Alitalia, said: “Deepening our codeshare cooperation with Air Seychelles brings important benefits to our guests, who now have dozens of new travel options from Italy to Madagascar and South Africa via Seychelles."

Air Seychelles operates an Airbus A320 aircraft configured with 136 seats on its  Antananarivo service, while its service to Johannesburg is operated using both an A320  aircraft and the wide-body A330, which offer 254 seats.
