Charles Johnson, Air Seychelles Chief Commercial Officer said: “During this difficult time, we understand the desire of citizens wanting to travel to their home country, or return to their country of work.


“Once allowed by all regulatory authorities, we aim to operate a series of repatriation flights around the region, including flights to connecting regional hubs, allowing guests to get to their desired destination.”
