Seychelles airport to welcome Qatar Airways and other returning airlines

Qatar Airways will receive a water canon welcome back to Seychelles this morning

After a halt to its operations to Seychelles in April this year following the Covid-19 pandemic, Qatar Airways will receive a water canon welcome back to the island nation this morning.

The airline which is expected to land at 8.55am local time has also already established a thrice weekly flight schedule to Seychelles on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday arriving in the morning and leaving the following day early morning at 1.20am local time.

The Seychelles International Airport also saw the return of British Airways during the weekend with over 170 passengers. Kenya Airways has indicated that it would be resuming operations on December 18.

However, since November the airport has been quite vibrant with the arrival of chartered flights from Tel Aviv, Israel. These flights have been conducted by ARKIA and EL AL which are both Israel’s International Airlines. Air Seychelles has also resumed its scheduled flights to Israel since last month. In total over 5000 Israeli tourists have been able to visit the archipelago.

Reunion based airline Air Austral is expected to restart its flights to Seychelles by this month with limited operations on Sundays, whereas Russian flag carrier Aeroflot is also showing great interest to fly back soon pending approval from the Public Health Authority.
