The experience of flying in Air Seychelles was a decent one. The cabin crew is helpful and polite. The in-flight entertainment is actually good and the food served in-flight is delicious. We traveled from Mumbai to Mauritius with a stop over at Seychelles which was not much of hassle as the place is beautiful. Overall it was a very comfortable...

Part of the cheaper flight back from New York to Johannesburg was to come via Seychelles from Abu Dhabi to Johannesburg. This included about 1,5 hours in the airport on Mahe Island in the Seychelles. It did make the trip back longer, but cannot not really complain about the actual flights. The planes are basically Etihad's with the same entertainment,...

Air Seychelles has decided (for a long time) to stop this year in April 2018 their direct connexion with Paris and all the long distance flights from Europe. They work already with Etihad for several years and all the long flights will pass by Abu Dhabi in the future. That's why maybe the service was a bit lower in the...

This is a very easy going service and personal too. Most people on the islands know each other and look out for one another and were very helpful with a lady going for hospital treatment. It is a small plane that has seen better days, but the flight is not long. The staff at the airports were all lovely and...

After the Business class flight from Abu Dhabi it was now time for the economy leg to Johannesburg. Before I get to that a quick mention about the transit at Mahe Airport. What a shame for holidaymakers first and last impression of the Seychelles being their airport. A cramped and chaotic shambles. With so many international airlines flying there it...

Booked economy, bid for upgrade to business class was successful. I have to say I was a wee bit worried about a flight close to 5 hours being on a small A320 however I was very much pleasantly surprised. Service, drinks and food were excellent. Flight departed just after 2am and I was also surprised when we were handed an...
