Air Seychelles and Air Austral have partnered through a new interline agreement, effective June 2024.

The new Special Prorate Agreement (SPA), allows passengers to travel between the two island nations on a single ticket via Mauritius with baggage checked to their final destination. 

This collaboration follows Air Austral’s decision to cancel its nonstop route between the two islands.


Air Seychelles currently operates three weekly flights between Seychelles and Mauritius (Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays).

Sample One-Way Trips

Seychelles to Reunion via Mauritius:

  • Departure from Seychelles at 09:30 hrs, arriving in Mauritius at 12:05 hrs.
  • Departure from Mauritius at 14:45 hrs, arriving in Reunion at 15:30 hrs.

Reunion to Seychelles via Mauritius

Perspectives from Air Austral and Air Seychelles

Joseph Brema, Chairman of the Management Board of Air Austral, emphasises the importance of offering an alternative travel option to Seychelles.

The destination is highly appreciated by Reunion islanders, and Air Austral hopes to resume direct flights once financial and operational conditions permit.

Sandy Benoiton, Chief Executive of Air Seychelles, expresses pleasure in bridging Seychelles and Reunion during this critical time.
