South African Airways has signed a codeshare agreement with Air Seychelles. The first phase of the agreement will see South African Airways place its ‘SA’ code on Air Seychelles’ non-stop flights between Johannesburg and Seychelles. South African Airways will also place its code on flights between the two largest islands of Seychelles, Mahé and Praslin, subject to approval.
Following the launch of the partnership between the airlines, they will look into expanding the agreement to include Air Seychelles placing its ‘HM’ code on South African Airways’ non-stop flights between Johannesburg and destinations across South Africa. The deal follows a strategic move by Air Seychelles to increase its connectivity throughout South Africa and continental Africa. Ticket sales are set to open on 29 April, for travel from April 30.
In March, Air Seychelles introduced an enhanced schedule and additional weekly service on its Johannesburg route, bringing the flights to three return services per week with daytime departures and arrivals.
