Air Seychelles will resume scheduled operations to Mauritius beginning October 3. Mauritius is set for a full reopening from October 1 following the partial reopening of the island nation to international travellers on 15, July.
The Seychellois national carrier suspended flights to Mauritius in March last year in view of restrictions imposed by the Mauritian government amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The airline hoped to resume its twice weekly services based on the market situation in Mauritius, the airline said recently.
Air Seychelles also noted that “as entry requirements at each destination may change due to the unprecedented environment, it is the responsibility of each traveller to verify and follow all COVID-19 pre-departure guidelines, in addition to ensuring all related travel documents are available upon check-in as requested by the country of destination.”
Currently the airline operates ad hoc charter services to Mauritius.
Meanwhile, Air Seychelles will continue its direct weekly flights to the Maldives, another island nation in the Indian Ocean.
The scheduled flights will be operated year-round by the airline’s A320neo jetliner directly to Velana International Airport in Male.
