Qatar Airways and Air Seychelles Sign Codeshare Agreement

Our Bureau - : May 23, 2023 - : 11:59 am

Qatar Airways has announced a codeshare agreement with Air Seychelles, the flag carrier of the Republic of Seychelles.

Qatar Airways serves over 160 destinations worldwide and connects travellers from Africa, America, Asia and Europe easily to and from Seychelles through its hub in Doha, Hamad International Airport (HIA). Moreover, Qatar Airways Privilege Club members can also earn and spend Avios at almost 200 outlets at Qatar Duty Free (QDF).

Currently, Qatar Airways operates a daily flight between HIA and Seychelles International Airport (SEZ), located on the Island of Mahé, near the capital city of Victoria, with a morning arrival and evening departure from Mahé Island. Because of the codeshare agreement, Qatar Airways will place its code on Air Seychelles’ operated flights between Mahé and Praslin and enable passengers to continue their journey conveniently using a single booking.

Passengers can book their travel with both airlines, through online travel agencies, as well as with local travel agents.

“Our strategy of facilitating connectivity to African markets through partnerships is in line with this enhanced cooperation with Air Seychelles,” said Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker. “Our two airlines are pleased to work together to benefit passengers with more travel choices and to support the tourism industry in Seychelles.”

Air Seychelles maintains its domestic network with a fleet of five Twin Otter TurboProps operating between Mahé and Praslin as well as charter flights. The airline celebrated 45 years in October 2022 and won the title ‘Indian Ocean’s Leading Airline’ at the World Travel Awards held in Kenya.

“This new partnership will provide passengers with new connection opportunities and access to unique destinations from both networks,” said Air Seychelles, Acting Chief Executive Officer, Captain Sandy Benoiton.
