NIKI and Air Seychelles launch codeshare partnership

NIKI and Air Seychelles, the national airline of the Republic of Seychelles, are now operating codeshare flights.

Passengers from Austria can now book Air Seychelles flights from Abu Dhabi to Mahé and from Mahé to the island of Praslin in combination with a NIKI flight from Vienna to Abu Dhabi, under a single NIKI flight number. In return, NIKI’s daily service between Abu Dhabi and Vienna will also carry the Air Seychelles flight number, thereby offering passengers daily flights between Mahé and the Austrian capital.

"We're pleased to announce that NIKI passengers now have an even greater choice of flights to the Seychelles. Besides the existing codeshare flights with Etihad Airways, our cooperation with our new codeshare partner, Air Seychelles, will provide our passengers with an even better travel experience. We're equally pleased to welcome Air Seychelles passengers onboard our aircraft on our flights between Abu Dhabi and Vienna", said Thomas Suritsch, Managing Director of NIKI.

Roy Kinnear, Chief Executive Officer of Air Seychelles, added: "We're absolutely delighted with this codeshare partnership with NIKI and the addition of such a historically and culturally important city as Vienna to our extended network. We're making it even easier for European travellers to spend their holidays in the Seychelles. The partnership also demonstrates how Air Seychelles is using codeshare agreements to contribute to the growing tourism market in the Seychelles, which can only benefit travellers."
