Air Seychelles has added Tel Aviv back to its route network following the successful restart of commercial passenger services between Israel and the Seychelles.

The national carrier operated its first flight from Ben Gurion Airport in the late evening on Tuesday, 17 November arriving at the Seychelles International Airport at 7.45am.

Commanded by Captain Vincent Carlier together with First Officer Bertrand Mein, the excited guests flying to paradise were tended to by Cabin Manager Joanne Auguste, Cabin Senior Christinne Henriette as well as Flight Attendant Herve Bonne and Elaine Marie. The flight was also supported by Engineer Denys Hassan.

During the month of November, Air Seychelles will operate four-weekly flights on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from Tel Aviv to the Seychelles. Carefully timed with late evening departures from Tel Aviv, the flight will allow guests to fall asleep throughout their journey and wake up completely refreshed, ready to discover the many treasures of the Seychelles Island upon arrival in the morning.

To book flights, guests are invited to visit, contact the Call Centre on +2484391000 or their local travel agent.

The returning flight on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays will depart Seychelles at 1730hrs and arrives in Tel Aviv at 2150hrs.

Tel Aviv is the second route added onto the Air Seychelles network after the resumption of flights to Johannesburg last week. Following the positive response received from the market, Air Seychelles will continue to work closely with international and local authorities to meet the travel demand on this route whilst ensuring the health and safety of its guests and flight crew remains a top priority.
