Holiday-seeking UAE residents will have a chance to fly with Air Seychelles as the airline has introduced a seven day return trip to the Indian Ocean archipelago at a time when airlines are picking up on seasonal traffic with the launch of new routes and organizing charter flights to popular holiday destinations.

The flight will depart Dubai International Airport Terminal 1 on Friday, Nov. 27, 2021 at 8:00 a.m. local time while the returning flight will depart Seychelles on Dec. 3, 2021 at 12:45 p.m.
