Air Seychelles will be operating two special additional flights to Dubai International Airport to allow stranded visitors traveling to the United Arab Emirates, Europe, United States of America and Asia the opportunity to return to their home.

Working in conjunction with Emirates, passengers flying with Air Seychelles to Dubai, will also have the opportunity to seamlessly connect onto the Emirates network to over 30 destinations.

Visitors are encouraged to register their interest via or email for more information.

To ensure a smooth process throughout, passengers are recommended to arrive at the airport three hours before their flight.

As a preventive measure against the spread of COVID-19, passengers will need to wear their own masks when at the airport and on board the aircraft at all times, in addition to maintaining social distancing during the check-in and boarding procedure.

As the situation remains dynamic at all ports of entry due to COVID-19, passengers are requested to verify up-to-date information regarding the procedures to be followed prior to and upon arrival at their country of destination.

As passengers will not be allowed to travel on the Dubai – Seychelles sector, the returning flight will be an all based cargo operation.
