Air Seychelles now firmly on the German map

Air Seychelles is firmly on the German map, with 80 weekly codeshare flights between Germany and Seychelles, the Chief Executive Officer of Air Seychelles, Manoj Papa, said today.

Mr Papa was speaking out of Stuttgart at the CMT 2015, a yearly public trade fair for tourism and leisure that is the largest of its kind in Germany and attracts on average over 200,000 visitors a year. This year it is being officially supported by the Seychelles Tourism Board.

Air Seychelles currently codeshares with airberlin and Etihad Airways on daily flights out of four German cities; Berlin, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt and Munich.

Additionally, airberlin now flies daily from Stuttgart to Abu Dhabi with six connections per week on Air Seychelles to the archipelago, thereby offering business and leisure travellers choice and convenience when connecting to Seychelles.

This is complemented by an enhancement on the Abu Dhabi – Seychelles route in December 2014, when Air Seychelles and Etihad Airways increased their weekly return flights from 10 to 13, offering guests from Germany even more flexibility. 

“The convenient air links we offer with airberlin and Etihad Airways are vital in supporting the growth of the German market, which surged upwards to record nearly 36,000 arrivals in 2014, emerging as our number one tourism source market.

“For many travellers in Germany and beyond, Air Seychelles is the airline of choice because of our unique creole spirit, the warmth and professionalism of our crew and the high standard of our business class product.

“When you step onboard our aircraft, you can feel Seychelles – it’s in the air. Our guests come first, which is why we were named as having the best business class and best cabin crew in the Indian Ocean by the World Travel Awards last year.
