Air Seychelles will commence a new direct service to the King Shaka International Airport, Durban, South Africa with effect from 30 March 2017.
The new Durban route will be operated twice weekly using a two-class Airbus A320 aircraft and will be the airline’s second route in South Africa after Johannesburg, where it flies five times per week.
Lying on South Africa’s eastern coast, Durban has a population of more than three million people and is a major centre of trade and commerce, with the largest and busiest port in sub-Saharan Africa.
The first flight will take off on 30 March 2017 and travellers can already purchase tickets with round-trip Economy Class fares starting from R5,000 (USD500) and Business Class fares from R15,000 (USD1,500).
Roy Kinnear, Chief Executive Officer of Air Seychelles, said: “The commencement of non-stop flights to the thriving city of Durban will establish a second air bridge between Seychelles and South Africa, complementing our five-per-week service to Johannesburg.
