Air France and Air Seychelles have signed a “landmark codeshare agreement”, following an MoU between the airlines in April.
Roy Kinnear, CEO of Air Seychelles, and Frédéric Gagey, chairman and CEO of Air France, signed the agreement.
The partnership will see Air Seychelles place its “HM” flight code on Air France’s domestic flights between Paris-Charles de Gaulle and six of the largest cities in France: Bordeaux, Lyon, Marseille, Montpellier, Nice and Toulouse.
In addition the agreement will extend Air France’s European services between Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Athens, Berlin, Dublin, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, Geneva, Manchester, Munich and Zurich. Altogether, Air Seychelles will codeshare on 157 weekly domestic and regional flights.
Air France will, in turn, codeshare on Air Seychelles’ three-per-week non-stop service between Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Seychelles, and on domestic flights between Mahé and Praslin, the second-biggest island in the archipelago and home of the famous Vallée de Mai nature reserve. In total, the French flag carrier will see its “AF” code appear on 18 weekly flights operated by Air Seychelles.
Codeshare flights can be booked now.
