Agreement between Air Seychelles and Air India gives travellers more connections

Victoria: Air Seychelles and Air India are now offering travellers enhanced connections on their respective networks following the signing of a codeshare agreement between the two airlines on Thursday.

The Seychelles’ national airline said that under the agreement, Air India will place its "AI" code on Air Seychelles regional services between Mumbai to Seychelles and Johannesburg.

In return, Air Seychelles will place its “HM” code on Air India’s domestic services to eight cities -- Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Kolkata, Kochi, Delhi, Hyderabad, Chennai and Trivandrum. The code will also be used on Air India’s international services between Mumbai and Bangkok.

At the signing ceremony, the chairman and managing director of Air India, Pradeep Singh Kharola, said, “This partnership with Air Seychelles will enable our customers to have a direct access to this beautiful archipelago in the Indian Ocean.”

“Our vast domestic network will ensure a seamless travel experience from all parts of India to the direct flight between Mumbai and Seychelles. We are indeed excited about this alliance,” added Kharola.
