Air Seychelles, the national airline of the Republic of Seychelles, and NIKI, the Austrian subsidiary airline of the airberlin group, have expanded their codeshare agreement, to offer travellers convenient flights between Austria and Seychelles via Paris.

As of today Air Seychelles will place its flight code on twelve weekly services operated by NIKI between Vienna and Paris and NIKI will place its code on six weekly services operated by Air Seychelles  between Paris and Seychelles offering  holidaymakers and business travellers a choice of same-day and stopover connections to Seychelles.

These new routes extend the already existing codeshare agreement signed by the two airlines in August 2015 that covers flights between Vienna and Seychelles via Abu Dhabi, as well as interisland flights between the archipelago’s largest islands of Mahé and Praslin, which is famous for its protected forest of rare coco-de-mer palm trees.

Roy Kinnear, Chief Executive Officer of Air Seychelles, said: “We are pleased to continue working with our codeshare partner NIKI to provide tourists and businesspeople from Austria with more travel options to our tropical islands. We are confident this development will have a positive knock- on effect on inbound tourism into Seychelles and look forward to welcoming NIKI’s passengers on board our aircraft. On the other hand, our guests in Seychelles can now choose to fly to Vienna, a city steeped in culture, history and tradition, via Paris or Abu Dhabi with NIKI, knowing they will have a smooth travel experience.”

Oliver Lackmann, Managing Director of NIKI Luftfahrt GmbH said: “With this codeshare expansion, air travellers can easily book one-stop flights from Austria to Paris and onwards to Seychelles, using one single combined ticket for their entire journey. We are pleased to be able to offer an even larger choice of connections to Seychelles, combining flights via Paris with flights via Abu Dhabi.”
