Effective Saturday, 21 March 2020, Air Seychelles will be revising its flight schedule to Praslin, due to reduced demand following the outbreak of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).
As part of its revised schedule, the airline will now operate six round trips between Mahe and Praslin on weekdays including seven round trips over the weekend starting from 6.25am until 7.10pm. Travellers are advised to visit www.airseychelles.com to view the schedule of flights.
Charles Johnson, Chief Commercial Officer of Air Seychelles said: “In order to continue to meet the needs of local travellers, a convenient schedule in the morning and evenings has been established for the next several weeks.
“We encourage travellers to regularly check our website for the latest timetable and flight information to ensure accuracy.”
Following guidance from the local Department of Health to prevent the spread of COVID-19, Air Seychelles is advising all travellers to avoid going to the airlines sales offices for bookings of tickets.
Travellers are requested to book their trip via airseychelles.com or at the reservations and ticketing desks located at the Domestic Terminal in both Mahe and Praslin. Note that only card payment is accepted at these facilities.
