The low-cost airline will operate three times a week from Jeddah to Mahé, with fast connections to or from Riyadh and Dammam.

Flights will depart on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. The 5 hours and 40 minutes flight will be operated on the brand new A320 Neo aircraft with a capacity of 174 seats.

The new flights, which will make travelling to Seychelles easier for citizens and residents, were initiated in cooperation with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Tourism, alongside the Seychelles Tourism Board and the Seychelles Civil Aviation Authority.

According to Seychelles Minister of Foreign Affairs and Tourism Sylvestre Radegonde, Saudi Arabia is the largest outbound market in the Middle East. With many in the Kingdom looking to go overseas after the opening of borders, Seychelles is ready to play host.

Before departure from Jeddah, travellers, regardless of vaccination status, are requested to apply for entry through the Seychelles Islands Health Travel Authorisation (HTA) official government website.

Other entry requirements include presenting a negative PCR test result taken within a maximum of 72 hours prior to your arrival and proof of valid travel health insurance covering any potential Covid-19 related costs.

Travellers will not be subjected to any quarantine or movement restrictions on arrival. However, you must follow the existing health regulations, including putting on facemasks in public and social distancing.

Notably, flynas’ summer routes include 11 other seasonal destinations added to its year-round network of flights, namely Salzburg, Kiev, Tashkent, Tirana, Hurghada, Vienna, Sarajevo, Baku, Tbilisi, Batumi, and Sharm El Sheikh.
