British Airways announces new Seychelles route

Article content

19 September 2017 by Simon Langley

From March 24 2018, British Airways will fly a new route between Heathrow Terminal 5 and the Seychelles, making it the only airline to offer a non-stop service from the UK.

Flights are set to take off twice weekly from March to October – ideal for a summer escape or a dose of spring and autumn sun. Departing Wednesdays and Saturdays, the timetable is set up for an immersive 10-day trip, perfect whether you’re on a honeymoon or family holiday. You’ll even be treated to the airline’s newest fleet of aircraft – the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner. Expect smoother flights, larger in-seat entertainment screens and British Airways’ latest First cabin.

And, what an escape the Seychelles offers. A paradise of white sand, sea turtles and coral reefs, only a handful of its hundred-strong collection of islands are inhabited. As such, it lacks the crowds of other long-haul beach destinations, pairing quiet relaxation with everything from windsurfing and sailing to hiking and snorkelling. Then, at the end of it all, you’ll return to some of the world’s finest hotels.
