Air Seychelles, the national airline of the Republic of Seychelles, today announced an expansion of its codeshare agreement with Etihad Airways for travel to Mumbai, the gateway to India.
Under this agreement, Air Seychelles will put its HM flight code on 21 weekly Etihad Airways flights between Mumbai and Abu Dhabi that connect onto its services between Abu Dhabi and Seychelles.
These codeshare flights will complement Air Seychelles’ existing direct flights between Mumbai and Seychelles, which were launched in December 2014.
Manoj Papa, Air Seychelles’ Chief Executive Officer, said: “We are excited to enhance our connectivity to Mumbai through this expanded codeshare, which builds on our three-per-week direct service to this metropolitan city.
“Put together, these flights offer travellers more choice, flexibility and convenience, including daily connections to our archipelago and the option of combining a direct flight to Seychelles with a stopover in Abu Dhabi on the return journey, or vice-versa.
