( Air Seychelles has announced that it would double its Johannesburg services to 4 return flights a week from December 1.

Cramer Ball, Air Seychelles’ Chief Executive Officer, said: “In March, we announced that we would double our services to Johannesburg when our second A330 is delivered next year, but because of strong bookings from South Africa and a projected boom over the busy holiday season, we reassessed the schedule to find a way to increase our frequency sooner.

“Air Seychelles will now operate a turn-around Johannesburg service in December, ensuring better air support during weekends for the increasing number of tourists coming to the islands.”
