Austrian Airlines will initiate flight service to the Seychelles starting with its winter 2017/18 flight schedule.
As of October 25, 2017, it will fly non-stop every Wednesday from Vienna to the vacation island in the Indian Ocean, returning to Vienna on Thursdays.
“Demand for direct flights to long-haul tourist destinations is high. We responded: In addition to Mauritius, Colombo and Havana, the Seychelles represent our fourth new destination within a period of only two years”, said Austrian Airlines CCO Andreas Otto.
As a result, Austrian Airlines will offer a total of five long-haul tourist destinations in its winter 2017/18 flight schedule. Up to two flights per week will be operated to both Mauritius and the Maldives. Austrian Airline will also operate one direct flight each week to Colombo, Havana and the Seychelles.
Austrian Airlines will deploy a Boeing 767 for flights to the Seychelles:
– Vienna–Seychelles: OS 013, Wednesdays, 8:05 p.m. – 8 a.m. (next day);
– Seychelles–Vienna: OS 014, Thursdays, 10:10 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
Austrian Airlines operates a global route network of approximately 130 destinations, being particularly dense in Central and Eastern Europe with 37 destinations. Austrian Airlines is part of the Lufthansa Group, Europe’s largest airline group, and a member of the Star Alliance, the first global alliance of international airlines.
