Turkish Airlines will expand its route map in the Indian Ocean next month with the launch of flights to the Seychelles.
Commencing on 31 October 2016, the airline will operate three weekly flights direct to the island nation.
Flights will depart Istanbul’s Ataturk International Airport every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday at 0105 and arrive in the Seychelles at 1055. The return service will then leave Mahe at 1225 on the same three days of the week, arriving back in Istanbul at 1810.
The Seychelles becomes the fifth Indian Ocean island nation to which Turkish Airlines flies, following Sri Lanka, the Maldives, Mauritius and Madagascar. It also brings the airline’s total network to 243 destinations worldwide, including 49 in Africa.
