Air France and Air Seychelles have signed a codeshare agreement to provide travellers with enhanced connections between France, wider Europe and Seychelles.
The partnership will see Air Seychelles place its HM flight code on Air France’s domestic flights between Paris-Charles de Gaulle and six of the largest cities in France: Bordeaux, Lyon, Marseille, Montpellier, Nice and Toulouse.
In addition, the HM code will appear on Air France’s European services between Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Athens, Berlin, Dublin, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, Geneva, Manchester, Munich and Zurich. Altogether, Air Seychelles will codeshare on 157 weekly domestic and regional flights.
Air France will, in turn, codeshare on Air Seychelles’ three weekly non-stop services between Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Seychelles, and on domestic flights between Mahé and Praslin. In total, the French flag carrier will see its AF code appear on 18 weekly flights operated by Air Seychelles.
Air Seychelles commenced its non-stop service between Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Seychelles in July, replacing a twice-weekly service via Abu Dhabi in operation since July 2014.
The flights are operated by an Airbus A330-200 aircraft in a twin-cabin configuration, with 18 business class and 236 economy class seats.
Codeshare flights can be booked from 19 August, for travel from 21 August 2015.
