Air Seychelles enhances Access to Africa

Air Seychelles continues to extend its network reach into Africa with the expansion of its Etihad Airways codeshare agreement to Entebbe, in central Uganda.

Under the agreement, Air Seychelles will place its flight code on four weekly flights operated by Etihad Airways between Entebbe and Abu Dhabi, where guests have connection options to and from Seychelles.

The codeshare flights also offer convenient access to the Ugandan capital of Kampala, one of the fastest-growing cities on the continent.

Roy Kinnear, Air Seychelles Chief Executive Officer, said: “We are pleased to expand our codeshare with Etihad Airways to include Uganda, which is experiencing a period of impressive economic growth.

“Backed by strong economic development, Uganda has seen a corresponding and significant rise in the number of leisure travellers, who now have convenient, one-stop access to Seychelles.

“By working together with Etihad Airways and South African Airways, we have been able to expand our network to nine destinations in Africa, and with this development, look forward to welcoming guests from Uganda onboard our flights.”

Codeshare flights between Entebbe and Seychelles can be booked through the Air Seychelles website:, or through Air Seychelles sales offices and local travel agents.
