Air Seychelles to operate inbound flights for Seychellois nationals

05.06.2020

Air Seychelles is working closely with the Department of Foreign Affairs to plan a series of inbound
flights in the upcoming weeks, to return Seychellois nationals as well as non-Seychellois residents
with permanent residence status in Seychelles, stranded across the airlines’ network and at
connecting hubs to the Seychelles.


As the flights will be operated based on demand, Seychellois nationals and non-Seychellois residents
with permanent residence status in Seychelles, are invited to register their interest via the Air
Seychelles webpage at www.airseychelles.com.


Following registration, the airline will liaise directly with the passenger to provide up-to-date
information regarding cost of airfares, date of operation including the necessary health
requirements to be followed upon check-in, boarding, in-flight and during disembarkation.
The information gathered with also be shared with the Department of Foreign Affairs to provide
further assistance as needed. Correct and valid contact details must therefore be provided upon
registration for the flight.

As only Seychellois nationals and non-Seychellois residents with permanent residence status in
Seychelles will be allowed to travel on these flights, prior to registration, all passengers must adhere
to a set of guidelines as follows:

  • Must hold a valid passport and Seychelles National Identification Card. 
  • Must commit to the cost of the airfare prior to travelling. 
  • Must hold a negative COVID-19 PCR test certificate conducted 48 hours prior to departure.

If the passenger is holding an unused Air Seychelles return ticket, the sample of the ticket must be
provided to the airline prior to being accepted on the flight. Note that additional charges will apply
based on the fare of the ticket at the time of purchase.

Passengers holding a ticket issued by another airline or a codeshare partner, meeting all the above
mentioned criteria, will be advised to purchase an Air Seychelles ticket upon confirmation and
acceptance for the flight.

All flights will be operated by the airlines’ A320neo jet aircraft of 12 Business Class and 156 Economy
Class seats.


Flights will be subjected to the approval of the government at each destination including regulatory
approval as well as that of the Seychelles Department of Health.


In adherence with the guidelines from the Department of Health, all passengers travelling on these
flights will undergo a 14 day quarantine at a government approved facility upon arrival into
Seychelles.
