BA flies direct to Seychelles

LONDON, March 28, 2018

British Airways’ new summer seasonal Seychelles flights are already set to move to year-round, operating twice a week, every week of the year.

On March 25, the airline’s first flight touched down at Mahé International Airport, making it the only airline offering a non-stop service from the UK.

The flights are to be operated by the airline’s newest aircraft to the fleet, the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner with four cabins: World Traveller (economy), World Traveller Plus (premium economy), Club World (business class) and an exclusive eight-suite First cabin.

Scattered across the Indian Ocean, Seychelles is famed as some of the most idyllic islands on the planet, offering honeymooners, families and sun worshippers world famous beaches, crystal clear waters, easy island hopping and colourful coral reefs.

Flights depart on Wednesdays and Saturdays and the route timetable is perfectly positioned for honeymooners and holidaymakers keen to immerse themselves in island-life for longer.

Richard Tams, British Airways’ spokesperson who flew on the very first flight, said: “Seychelles is called the ‘land of perpetual summer’ and the route has proved so popular with our leisure customers that we are delighted to start serving the destination year-round.”

Return fares start from £699 ($990.7) in World Traveller, £999 ($1,415.9) in World Traveller Plus, £2,499 ($3,541.8) in Club World and from £3,499 ($4,959.1) for First, and are available to book now on the airline's website.

For those wanting to soak up the sun in Seychelles, British Airways Holidays has the following packages on offer:
