Etihad Airways and Air Seychelles enhances Abu Dhabi-Seychelles schedule

Etihad Airways and Air Seychelles today announced changes to their flight schedules on the Abu Dhabi-Seychelles route, offering their guests more choice and greater flexibility when travelling to and from Mahé in the Republic of Seychelles.
Effective 1 December 2014, the new schedule will see Etihad Airways add one service per week and Air Seychelles a further two services per week, bringing the combined number of weekly return flights to Seychelles from 10 to 13.

The new schedule will provide an additional 217 weekly connections to key destinations across the Gulf region, Middle East, Indian Subcontinent, North Asia, and Australia, including Beijing, Shanghai, Tokyo and Seoul. Excellent connectivity will be maintained to and from Europe via Etihad Airways’ hub in Abu Dhabi.

Kevin Knight, Etihad Airways’ Chief Strategy and Planning Officer, said: “The change in flight schedule comes as part of the airline’s efforts to move towards a consistent double daily service between Abu Dhabi and Seychelles in cooperation with our equity partner Air Seychelles.

“The new schedule will greatly benefit business and leisure travellers, ensuring they have more convenient travel options when flying between the UAE and Seychelles, and better onward flight connections on 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 operate a combination of two-class Airbus A330 (18 Business Class and 236 Economy Class) and A320 (16 Business Class and 120 Economy Class) aircraft on the route.
