Airlines are preparing to resume flights to Seychelles after lifting restrictions.
Airlines will resume flights to the Seychelles as the island reopens for tourism due to vaccinations, starting on March 25. National airline Air Seychelles will resume flights to Dubai later this month, while Qatar Airways will increase the frequency of flights to the island.
Those wishing to go on holiday to Seychelles must test negative for a Covid-19 test not older than 72 hours.
Seychelles will reopen for tourism on March 25. In January, the country reopened its borders only for vaccinated travelers, being one of the few countries to do so.
Airlines have mobilized to respond to the demand.
Air Seychelles, which had only carried cargo and repatriation, will resume flights on March 28. The first flight to Dubai airport will be on March 28. The flight will be operated once a week for a start, according to the Seychelles news agency, but the frequency of flights could be increased depending on demand.
Qatar Airways also took advantage of this opportunity. The Doha carrier will increase the frequency of flights in the summer season.
Qatar currently operates three flights a week to the capital Mahé, according to Breaking Travel News. Flights from Doha to Mahé are on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays (2:00 AM - 8:15 AM local time). The return flight departs on the same day at 19:00 and arrives in Doha at 23:00.
Given that the Seychelles is a leisure destination, Qatar offers an excellent opportunity for tourists who want to check into their hotels and who hope to spend as much time as possible on the island.
