Air Seychelles confirms Beijing charters after announcing Chengdu in June

SEYCHELLES TOURISM TO BENEFIT FROM THREE ADDITIONAL CHINA CHARTERS

(Posted 07th July 2017)

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 27th of September, 04th of October and 11th of 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‘.
