Etihad adds more flights to Seychelles for UAE holidaymakers

Decline in coronavirus cases worldwide force airlines to add more flights to tourist destinations like Seychelles, an archipelago in the western Indian Ocean.

To provide best air travel services to the UAE holidaymakers and families with convenient travel options to the tropical island, the Abu Dhabi-based Etihad Airways will be operating more flights to Seychelles from October.

The national airline of the UAE will upgrade its Seychelles service from four to five weekly flights from Oct.7, as well as operate seven additional services between Oct.15 and 24 to coincide with the half-term holidays.

Martin Drew, Etihad’s Senior Vice President Sales and Cargo, said, “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.”

Travellers will need to present a negative PCR test before boarding Etihad Airways flights.
