“Fantastic but short flight, highly recommended although a bit pricy!”
Review of Air Seychelles


Reviewed March 25, 2018

When returning from Praslin for our flight back home, we chose to fly to make sure we made it on time and did not have to spend a lot of time on transfer on Mahe.
We feel it was a good choice, especially since the actual trip was an experience in itself.

The plane is small but feels very safe - and I have a fear of flying, I never flew something this small before. The logistics at the Praslin airport are very simple, but still full-featured.

The flight only takes 15 minutes but offers fantastic views of especially Praslin island. It also very handy to switch from the domestic to the international "terminals" at Mahe, so it does work to save time using this option of transport.

Try to have as little hand luggage as possible, you need to keep it in your lap or under the seat in front of you. There is no overhead room or other handluggage space in the cabin.

When arriving at Mahe, the luggage is delivered right inside the terminal door in a very small spot not clearly marked. Can be a bit confusing.

All in all a positive experience, but a bit expensive (about double the mimimum price of the ferry).

Good service and welcoming staff. Nothing to fault and certainly a pleasant experience from start to finish.

we travel Air Seychelles business class about 6 - 8 times per annum. Yesterday, my wife and I were told there is no duck starter and no cheese dessert - we were in the second row for goodness sake! However, two passengers next to us boarded long after we were told this and, lo and behold, they both had the duck and cheese! Air Seychelles standards have ben slipping now for at least 2 years. If there was an alrernative betweenSA / Seychelles, we would be on it!

Service ils kind but erratic,food is average,seats are fairly uncomfortable in sleeping position,on time landing one way,behind schedule on the way back.
Business lounge at Victoria airport comfortable but inadequate for people having difficulty to climb stairs on walk on tarmac ( no lifts to plane or inside air terminal).
Note no more code sharing or agreement with Air France,hence no miles to be obtained for AF Flying Blue passengers.
