Following the reintroduction of travel restrictions by the Seychelles government from June 1, which affects travel between South Africa and the Seychelles, national airline Air Seychelles will be reducing the number of flights scheduled from Johannesburg until further notice.
All flights on Fridays that connect to the airline’s Maldives service will still operate as scheduled and are still available for sale. South African passport holders are able to take these flights, regardless of vaccine status, the airline says.
It adds that travellers holding tickets for travel to the Seychelles, can apply for unlimited date changes for free with no penalty fee for travel up to December 31.
The complementary date change must be applied three days prior to departure.
The airline notes that Air Seychelles will not charge reissuance fees at the time of rebooking; however, any applicable fare difference will apply.
Travellers who bought tickets for travel to the Seychelles in June can also opt to upgrade their destination to the Maldives on flights departing Johannesburg on June 18 and 25 at no additional fee.
