You can currently fly to Seychelles with Star Alliance member Turkish Airlines starting at €454 from Milan, Rome, Athens, and three German airports. Flying with Turkish Airlines has two major advantages: luggage is included, and the service on board is very good – at least compared to many other economy classes. Merely the seats are not exactly the most comfortable ones.
Our calendar shows all available dates for trips of up to 28 days. You can either be redirected to our Travel-Dealz flight search, where you’ll get the cheapest OTA price, or to Turkish Airlines’ website, which is a bit safer but also costs roughly €40 more.
You can depart from the following cities:
You would first fly to Istanbul, from where you’d take an 8-hour flight to Seychelles onboard an Airbus A330. You’ll be served a hot meal and drinks for free.
Search & Book
This fare can apparently be booked until November 29, 2021, though the availability may run out before then. Your flights need to start before June 14, 2022. Furthermore, your stay cannot exceed 12 months. The economy class tickets can’t be cancelled but can be rebooked without having to pay a rebooking fee.
Our calendar above displays all available dates for trips of up to 28 days. Should you wish to stay even longer, you’ll have to use Google Flights to find available dates. Either way, you can then get the cheapest price on our Travel-Dealz flight search. Alternatively, you can also book on Turkish Airlines’ website, though that increases the price by roughly €40.
The tickets are issued in booking class U, which will only get you miles at Turkish Airlines Miles&Smiles. The shortest route (from Athens) would get you 2,300 miles. If you want to calculate the number of miles that you’d get on a different route, simply use our Miles&Smiles calculator below:
Information & Tips for Seychelles
The Seychelles is an archipelago of 115 islands in the Indian Ocean off the east coast of Africa. There are numerous beaches, coral reefs and nature reserves as well as rare animals such as Aldabra giant tortoises. The capital Victoria is located on Mahé, the starting point for visiting the other islands. The island also offers rainforests in the mountains of the Morne-Seychellois National Park and beaches such as Beau Vallon and Anse Takamaka.
Best Time to Visit
The best times to visit Seychelles are April, May, October and November. These months represent the transition times between the hot and humid northwest trade winds (from November through March) and the cooler southeast trade winds that define April through October.
Entry & Visa
Most EU citizenss do not need a visa. A permit for the duration of the trip will be issued upon arrival at the border. It can be extended for a further three months up to one year.
Passport, return flight ticket, hotel booking and sufficient financial means (approx. US$ 150 per day) are required for entry. Checks on entry can be made, funds can be carried in cash, traveller’s cheques or credit cards.
