Air Seychelles recorded the busiest travel period on its domestic network in 2016, with over 4,500 guests flying between Mahé and Praslin for the Feast of Assumption holiday weekend.

In anticipation of the high travel demand for the popular Roman Catholic holiday, the airline operated 15 additional return flights between Friday 12 August and Monday 15 August, with a total of 146 return services being flown over the four-day period.

Roy Kinnear, chief executive officer of Air Seychelles, said: “We are pleased to have supported the local community in celebrating the Feast of Assumption, which was also a great opportunity for tourists to experience the traditions and customs of Seychelles.

“The extra domestic flights were added to match the level of interest in the market and were met with a fantastic response.

“Additional staff was on duty and more shifts introduced on both Praslin and Mahe Domestic terminal to handle the extra flights.”
