Air Seychelles Scales Down European Operations


Air Seychelles, the national airline of the Republic of Seychelles, has scaled down its operation in Europe due to declining demand, the airline announced on Monday.

As part of the adjustment, the airline will suspend its service to Düsseldorf from 10 September and reduce its Paris operation from four services to a three-per-week schedule from 12 September.

According to Roy Kinnear, Chief Executive Officer of Air Seychelles, the airline “made the difficult decision to suspend flying to Düsseldorf after an in-depth review of the route showed that the service is unsustainable.

“Given the high number of airlines operating or offering connectivity out of Germany, the seasonal nature of the route where peak travel periods are outweighed by low demand during the off-peak season, the extremely competitive levels of fares and existing fuel prices, it is not viable for us to continue serving the market at this point in time.

“In addition, the volume of connecting traffic from our partner airlines over Düsseldorf has not lived up to expectations, making it harder to sustain the necessary passenger loads to meet our commercial objectives."

As a result of the weakened demand for air travel out of France, Air Seychelles has also reduced its Paris service from four to three flights per week.

According to the airline, the Paris route will continue to be operated with a two-class Airbus A330-200 aircraft, with flights operating on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays out of Seychelles and on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays out of Paris.

Air Seychelles said that all guests who are affected by the service changes will be offered alternative travel arrangements with Air Seychelles.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.
