Seychelles must be one of THE dream destinations for many travelers. Whether it’s scuba diving or just sunbathing at one of the beautiful beaches – you should be able to find something that makes your vacation unforgettable in this archipelago country in the Indian Ocean.
Costs for a trip there aren’t exactly low, but this offer might help. British Airways is selling discounted tickets for flights from Nice or Paris to Mahé, the main island of the republic. Prices start at only €471 and already include checked luggage.
Your trip will include a layover in London. The airline will operate a Boeing 787 on the long-haul flights from Europe to the Seychelles.
Search & Book
According to the fare rules we found, you should be able to buy tickets until March 12, 2020, but with prices that low, the cheap seats could be sold out much earlier. The offer is valid for trips commencing before March 28th, as well as from April 18th to July 11th and September 1st until October 16th.
The minimum stay requirement is that your stay includes a Sunday, and your trip may not exceed 12 months.
The feeder flights are in booking class S, whereas the long-haul segments are in booking class O. Both booking classes will generate only a few miles in your frequent flyer program of choice but better than nothing we suppose.
