Dubai & Abu Dhabi


December 21, 2017

Air Seychelles was established in 1978 and began long-haul operations in 1983. As the national airline of the Republic of Seychelles, Air Seychelles is a pillar of tourism, the island nation’s strongest and growing economic sector. Having a strategic equity partnership with Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates based in Abu Dhabi, the two airlines have collaborated on a long-term business plan which sees Air Seychelles renew its fleet, take advantage of Etihad Airways’ resources and extensive global route network, maximize efficiencies, boost sales opportunities and launch training programmes for Seychellois.

Since we live in Dubai, Air Seychelles offers a VIP transfer to Abu Dhabi airport and in only few hours you arrive to the paradise. The Seychelles is an archipelago of 115 islands in the Indian Ocean, off East Africa. It’s home to numerous beaches, coral reefs and nature reserves, as well as rare animals such as giant Aldabra tortoises.

From the moment we step off the aircraft we were captivated by the beauty of the Seychelles and by choosing Air Seychelles VIP Experience you will be welcomed by a hostess  by the plane. The Creole hospitality is famous and our hostess escorted us to the VIP facility Air Seychelles has at the airport. They took care of everything on our arrival – passport control and baggage collection and in less than 30 minutes, while having a fresh juice and a coffee, our driver was ready to drive us to our destination.

I truly recommend getting the VIP experience Air Seychelles offers on arrival.

Since the arrival at Mahe airport was fantastic, we decided to get to the airport with time enough to relax and enjoy the comfort of the Air Seychelles Premium Lounge. They offer an array of facilities and a memorably relaxing pre- flight experience at the Seychelles International Airport.

Named Vallée de Mai after one of the world’s UNESCO protected sites and nature reserves on Praslin, the Premium lounge, located in the international departure zone of the Seychelles International Airport, has an air of quiet elegance reflecting the unique beauty of the Seychelles.

Equipped with internet facilities, the lounge offers a complimentary Wi-Fi service allowing your last posts on Instagram or to answer an important email before the flight. Avid readers can also choose from a list of international newspapers and magazines while indulging in a selection of Seychellois inspired light dishes or a refreshing choice of both hot and cold beverages.
Business Class guests and frequent flyer members have complimentary access to the lounge but the passes can be also purchased. I wouldn’t doubt it!

Air Seychelles Business Class offers16 luxurious upholstered seats with built in massage and lumbar support, Gourmet cuisine with menus carefully selected to offer a blend of traditional Creole and international flavors
Selection of fine wines and liqueurs
Personal 10.4 touch TV screen
, a wide selection of movies, TV shows, documentaries and games makes your flight in the most luxurious way.
