A flyers’ guide: Seychelles flight tips

Everything you need to know about flying to Seychelles

What’s the cheapest time to fly to Seychelles?

With the average temperature at 27°C, these exotic islands are a welcoming year-round destination. The cheapest time to visit the Seychelles is during the shoulder months of April and May and October and November – like all tropical places, rain is inevitable – but that doesn’t make Seychelles holidays any less enchanting. You can be assured of short, sharp rain bursts, where the sun shines the rest of the time. The driest weather is between June and September, when the waters are warm and crystal clear – perfect for swimming, snorkelling and diving, but prices rise accordingly. To find our cheapest flights to Seychelles, use our lowest fare finder.

How long is the flight from London to Seychelles?

You’ll fly from London to Seychelles International Airport (SEZ), via Doha Hamad International Airport (DOH), with Qatar Airways. There is a year-round service, varying in frequency from twice per week to daily depending on the season.

How do I get from Seychelles airport to my resort?

Seychelles International Airport (SEZ) is on the mountainous island of Mahé. You can travel to the capital of Victoria by bus, taxi or car, which is just seven miles away from the airport. If your onward journey is to another of the Seychelles islands, you will need to make your transfer by ferry, speedboat, or plane, depending on which island your resort is on. There is also a free shuttle operating from the airport to the harbour, for those travelling by boat.

Three long-haul flight tips for Seychelles

Travelling can be tiring, but you can arrive refreshed and ready to go if you follow some easy steps:

  1. It’s important to stay hydrated during a flight, so drink plenty of soft drinks and water to help your body feel good. Moisturise and use lip balm, take extra layers and wear comfortable clothing. Don’t forget to walk around to keep your blood flowing – as this can also reduce the effects of jet lag.
  2. Get ahead of jet lag by living on your new time zone as soon as you can. The Seychelles are just south of the equator and four hours ahead of GMT. Use our jet lag calculator for advice from our sleep expert.
  3. Remember to look after your ears. Chew on gum or sweets when you take off and land, so you don’t suffer with the pressure change. Yawning, as well as exhaling through your nostrils while keeping them gently pinched, will help your ears to adjust comfortably.

Seychelles tips

When to tip

Tipping isn’t compulsory here. Many of the restaurants, hotels, bars and taxis already include a 5-10 per cent tip to the bill, so extra tipping isn’t obligatory. If you have experienced an excellent service, an additional tip would be warmly welcomed.

Free things to do

Soak up the free natural wonders of the Seychelles. Kick back on some of the best beaches in the world. Anse Volbert beach offers pristine waters, powder-soft sand and euphoric views. Take in the exotic landscape, go hiking through jungles and trek across mountains.

Weather in the Seychelles

The Seychelles weather offers dazzling sunshine throughout the year. Reaching highs of 32°C plus and lows of 24°C, you’ll be in your flip flops every day. Although rainfall is higher from November to February, like other tropical destinations, showers are short, sweet and refreshing.
