Etihad Airways will be operating more flights to Seychelles from October to provide holidaymakers and families with convenient travel options to the tropical paradise.
The national airline of the UAE will upgrade its Seychelles service from four to five weekly flights from October 7, as well as operate seven additional services between October 15 and 24 to coincide with the half-term holidays.
These additional flights have been scheduled to provide families with younger children with more travel options during the school break, a statement from the airline said.
Senior Vice President Sales and Cargo Martin Drew said: “This is the perfect time to discover the beauty of Seychelles, with balmy temperatures and calm waters ideal for snorkelling, diving and enjoying its beaches.
“Seychelles is a one-of-a-kind destination, and with vaccinated travellers in the UAE being able to fly there and back without quarantine. It is the perfect destination for a short getaway or a longer family holiday.”
Etihad Airways has launched a sale on fares to Seychelles, valid only on etihad.com until midnight on October 2. Available on a first come, first served basis, return fares will start from AED1,795 in Economy, for travel in October and November.
