British Airways to operate direct flights to the Seychelles
From March 24 next year, customers will be able to fly direct from Heathrow Terminal 5 to the Seychelles with British Airways.
The flights will be twice-a-week from March to October and will be operated by the airline’s newest fleet of aircraft, the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner.
With flights taking off on Wednesdays and Saturdays, the route timetable is ideally positioned for honeymooners and holidaymakers who can book 10-night trips.
Sean Doyle, British Airways’ director of network and alliances, said: “The Seychelles is one of the most beautiful places on earth and we’re delighted to be adding this collection of islands to our extensive route network. Customers can now get into ‘holiday mode’ even earlier with British Airways’ direct flights from London taking 10 hours, instead of over 13 hours with a connection in the Middle East. As one of the leading luxury holiday destinations, the Seychelles offers customers a wide range of accommodation and activities in stunning natural surroundings.”
Return fares start from £699 in World Traveller, £999 in World Traveller Plus, £2499 in Club World and from £3499 for First.
