1302

 Air Seychelles, the national airline of the Republic of Seychelles, has expanded its codeshare network with airberlin, Europe’s seventh largest carrier, to cover Praslin and two new destinations in Europe: Stockholm and Copenhagen.

Air Seychelles will place its HM code on six airberlin flights per week between Berlin and Stockholm, and seven weekly airberlin flights between Berlin and Copenhagen. airberlin will place its AB code on eight Air Seychelles flights per week between Mahé and Praslin.

Cramer Ball, Air Seychelles’ Chief Executive Officer, said: “Our codeshare partnership with airberlin has been a commercial success, contributing to the bottom line and to a record surge in arrivals from Germany. With the addition of Stockholm and Copenhagen, we will bolster our position in Scandinavia, one of the fastest growing source markets to Seychelles, and we are confident we will be able to leverage our presence to drive more high-income traffic to our archipelago.”

Joel Morgan, Minister for Home Affairs and Transport, and chairman of Air Seychelles’ Board, said: “I’m thrilled to see the partnership between Air Seychelles and airberlin flourishing. With this expansion, both airlines will benefit: guests throughout airberlin’s global network can now enjoy seamless travel on one ticket to the exquisite island of Praslin, while Air Seychelles will extend its reach into Europe, smartly targeting an economically vibrant geographical region whose residents are discovering Seychelles at an accelerating pace. Arrivals from the region are up 29% this year.”
