PUBLISHED October 25, 2020 | updated October 25, 2020 02:33

Air Seychelles has announced that the airline will operate passenger services from Johannesburg to Maldives between 4 December, 2020 and 9 January, 2021. 

The flights scheduled from Johannesburg will provide travelers the opportunity to plan their holidays in advance for the upcoming festive season now that both countries have reopened to welcome back international visitors. 

The aircraft will make an intermediate stop briefly in the Seychelles before continuing to Velana International Airport in Male (MLE). 

The returning flight set to be operated every Saturday, will allow for a full week holiday in the Maldives with a total flying time of less than 9 hours. Beach-seekers can also enjoy a stopover in Seychelles on their return flight home to extend that hard-earned holiday. 

Air Seychelles will operate three non-stop flights per week between Johannesburg and Seychelles in December. For bookings travelers are invited to book online, contact the Call Centre on +2484391000 or visit local travel agents. 

As a preventive measure against the spread of COVID-19 travellers will need to provide proof of negative RT-PCR test results conducted 72 hours prior to the flight. 

Due to the unprecedented events surrounding the COVID - 19 pandemic, Air Seychelles has extended its waiver policy to provide travellers more flexibility and peace of mind if they choose to rebook and fly at a later time. As part of the policy, travellers holding tickets issued any time until 31 December 2020, can now benefit from unlimited date changes with no penalty fee.

Air Seychelles values the health and safety of its passengers and crew. It is a mandatory requirement for travellers to complete the airlines’ health self-assessment form 24 hours prior to departure in addition to wearing a mask at all times throughout the flight.

All tourists are to present a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken a maximum of 96 hours before departure from their initial destination, as made mandatory by the Government of Maldives.
