Air Seychelles direct flights to Madagascar launch in December

The national airline of the Seychelles, Air Seychelles, has announced that twice-weekly direct flights between Seychelles and neighbouring Indian Ocean island of Madagascar will commence on 3 December after a hiatus of 33 years. The move, which is still subject to government approval, is expected to enhance connectivity in the region and boost cultural and trade ties between the two countries.

 Air Seychelles will fly on Wednesdays and Saturdays to the Madagascan capital of Antananarivo. After the carrier announced the start of direct flights to the Tanzanian capital Dar Es Salaam, Air Seychelles will fly to four destinations – Johannesburg, Mauritius, Tanzania and Madagascar – in the region by the end of the year.
