Air Seychelles will be launching a new service to Kazakhstan. The seasonal service begins 26 December and will operate until 27 March, 2023.
The inaugural flight will depart Almaty on 26 December, arriving into Mahe on 27 December at 07:00. The new service, a first ever between the two countries, will be operated on a two-class Airbus A320 neo with 12 seats in Business Class and 156 in Economy Class, providing a total of 672 seats to and from Kazakhstan each week.
Air Seychelles Chief Commercial Officer, Charles Johnson explains: “We’re extremely proud to announce our first new destination after the Covid pandemic. With the recent signing of a new bilateral agreement between the two countries, this route will open the door to Kazakhs wanting to explore Seychelles and other islands in the Indian Ocean. It also marks the first time Air Seychelles will be flying to Central Asia, which offers a growing leisure tourism market that will surely love the award winning beaches and rare animals such as giant Aldabra tortoises that Seychelles has to offer.”
The seasonal service will offer connections to Mauritius, Maldives and Johannesburg. In addition to the twice weekly service, additional flights are on sale for the peak festive season in December and March.
