Air Seychelles has today announced that the airline will add Tel Aviv back on its route network following the removal of travel restrictions and reopening of the Ben Gurion Airport in Israel.

To boost demand on this route over the upcoming Passover Holidays, between 23 March and 27 March 2021, the national airline will operate four flights from the vibrant city of Tel Aviv to the Seychelles. The 6 hours 20 minutes flight will be operated by the airlines’ Airbus A320neo aircraft of 12 Business and 156 Economy Class seats.

From 31, March, 2021, Air Seychelles will operate three weekly flights on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays throughout the summer season.

All travellers arriving from Tel Aviv to the Seychelles must hold a negative COVID‐19 PCR test certificate taken no more than 72 hours before departure. Travellers must also complete the mandatory Health Travel Authorization at

On the returning flight, besides the negative COVID-19 PCR test applicable to travellers with a vaccination certificate or a certificate of recovery, for those flying into Israel who are required to go into isolation, the inbound passenger statement including health declaration must be completed 24 hours prior to departure from Seychelles as recommended by the Israeli authority.

As travelling to Israel is still not permitted to foreign nationals for leisure purposes yet, an entry clearance certified by an Israeli consulate or by the Population and Immigration Authority of Israel will be required upon reservation for residents of Seychelles travelling to Israel.
