British Airways have announced they will be launching direct flights from the UK to the Seychelles from 24 March 2018. The flights will run twice weekly from Heathrow’s Terminal 5.
This means British Airways will now be the only airline to operate direct flights to the Seychelles from the UK. They will run from March to October, on Wednesdays and Saturdays, and will be on the airline’s newest fleet of aircraft, the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner.
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.”
This is fantastic news for The Private Travel Company clients who can now visit some of their favourite destinations more easily including the popular Four Seasons Resort Seychelles, Raffles Praslin and Denis Private Island.
The Seychelles is one of the most visually dramatic places on earth with 115 individual islands scattered across the Indian Ocean and home to numerous paradise beaches, coral reefs and nature reserves. The islands have become incredibly popular destinations for honeymooners with the idyllic views a natural setting for a romantic holiday, but families are also lured by the charms of the Seychelles and there are many resorts that cater for children, too.
