Posted 12 October 2017 · Add Comment

Qatar Airways is to upgrade service its Seychelles route to an A330 aircraft, starting 29 October 2017.

The 260-seater A330 aircraft will increase the airline’s current daily capacity by 130 per cent on this route, connecting Seychelles-based passengers to more than 150 destinations globally.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, Akbar Al Baker, said: “Qatar Airways is delighted to be introducing its Airbus A330 aircraft on the route to Seychelles. By providing more capacity on board the A330, we will be able to offer even more passengers from around the globe the opportunity to experience the idyllic white sand beaches of the Seychelles. This enhancement to our offering demonstrates our commitment to the local market and to the many passengers each month who choose to fly to this popular destination with Qatar Airways.”

Qatar Airways launched service to the Seychelles in December 2016, and has since contributed to the development of tourism and the growth of local business in the Seychelles.

The Airbus A330 aircraft, which features 24 seats in Business Class and 236 seats in Economy Class, enables passengers to enjoy the airline’s superior entertainment system, Oryx One, offering countless entertainment options. Business Class passengers can also relax in flatbed seats, offering an unsurpassed standard of comfort on board.

Qatar Airways operates to 20 destinations in Africa, including Addis Ababa, Algiers, Cape Town, Casablanca, Durban, Johannesburg, Khartoum, Lagos, Marrakech, Nairobi and Zanzibar, among others.
