First the positives. Very helpful and friendly staff who did their best under trying circumstances. Food was good quality. Staff at the head office in the Seychelles helpfully transacted my extra luggage payment prior to departure. The negatives. Our flight from Abu Dhabi was delayed by 4 hours. The cabin was cramped and definitely not the standard you would expect...

a good airline to travel with. however, i would advise you to check weight of luggage before check-in. i was under a kilo overweight and had to pay in excess of R1000 for extra weight. a sad end to a beautiful holiday. !!!

This quite a long flight but manageable because of the generous size of aircraft and the welcoming, hard-working cabin crew. The flight crew did their jobs well too....landing on target, on time and on wheels!

Typically good, no-frills airline....but cabin crew were very good. The aircraft was quite comfortable for its size, but I should have taken neck support for extra comfort. The food was average, but edible.

This was a small plane, with no food, inflight movie or toilets.....perhaps not surprisingly as the flight only took 15-20 minutes. The view from the widow made up for the lack of inflight entertainment and the pilots made a good team and were very knowledgeable. Take off and landing were spot on....smooth as landing on a sheet of glass.

As the only airline that fly’s to the Seychelles, hard not to recommend. They do need onboard duty free though. Very good service.

Landed in Mahé from London and needed to get to Praslin Island, and Air Seychelles operates frequent flights in little Twin Otter propeller aircraft. Domestic terminal is a short walk from international arrivals. Check-in painless (2.5 hours before flight) and although technically, we were allowed only 2 bags, the cabin is small so a cabin bag had to be checked...

The plane covering the distance between the isles of Mahé and Praslin is a propeller light aircraft. The height inside the aircraft is rather reduced to such an extent that upon entering it one has to bend his back considerably in order not to hit the ceiling, but that’s not disturbing at all for once seated the comfort is similar...

Flying with Air Seychelles was a very pleasant experience. The plane was clean and service onboard was friendly and good. The flight is direct. The only down side is the flight lands late in Mahe and by the time you have landed and got to your hotel it is too late to get dinner as most of the restuarants are...
