SEYCHELLES: Air Seychelles Boosts Connections From China With A Series Of Charter Flights From Beijing

Air Seychelles, the national airline of the Republic of Seychelles, has announced a series of non-stop charter flights between Beijing and Seychelles. The carrier will operate three return Airbus A330 services from the Chinese capital, as part

of an agreement signed with a Chinese tour operator Caissa. Flights have been scheduled to depart Beijing on 27 September, 4 October and 11 October and will provide convenient travel options to the Indian Ocean archipelago during the Golden Week national holidays, a traditionally busy travel period in China.

Last year, up to half a billion Chinese nationals are estimated to have travelled domestically and overseas during the Golden Week celebrations. The carrier’s Beijing service will complement the recently-announced charter flights from Chengdu, which Air Seychelles is set to operate in July and August. Roy Kinnear, Chief Executive Officer of Air Seychelles, said: “Our Beijing charters have been designed to capture the travel demand out of China during the Golden Week holidays.

“Our A330 flights will provide Chinese holidaymakers with easy, non-stop access to one of the most beautiful island groups in the world. “These flights will have a positive impact on the local Seychelles economy and support the growth of inbound tourism numbers from China.”
