The new service will be operational on Wednesdays from 27 November from Seychelles with the return flight a week later from Tel Aviv.

Michael Berlouis, Chief Financial Officer of Air Seychelles , said the new direct flight to Tel Aviv would be a first for the Indian Ocean region.

“The creation of the first-ever air corridor between Seychelles and Tel Aviv will strengthen the commercial, tourism and cultural links between the two countries, as well as boosting traffic and connecting to other destinations in our network,” said Mr. Berlouis.

He added that Seychelles was considered a safe destination for Israelis. Once a week service will allow us to “open up the Seychelles market, evaluate and further develop this destination, in addition to exploring the possibility of even introducing the second Airbus A320neo on the route, if needed , Tel Aviv having a high GDP per capita “.

The route is also part of the new Air Seychelles business plan. The airline announced changes to its regional network in March as part of its business transformation plan to strengthen and sustain the airline’s sustainability.

As part of its network adjustments, the airline said it would focus on developing its operations in the region.

Berlouis said the airline has partnered with tour operators in Tel Aviv to get the majority of seats sold in Tel Aviv as one or two package holidays in Seychelles and Mauritius.

Air Seychelles is already facing a competitive environment and island nation president Danny Faure said in his state of the nation address that the government will allocate $ 6 million a year to Air Seychelles for the next five years from next year.

The Seychelles National Company, an archipelago of the Western Indian Ocean, was established in 1978 and began long-haul service in 1983. Air Seychelles currently offers international flights to Johannesburg, Mauritius and Mumbai.
