flight time to Seychelles
You can fly direct from London to the Seychelles with British Airways.
Flights to Seychelles are twice a week and take around 10 hours. Making your way to ‘the land of perpetual summer’ has never been easier.
Fly direct from London Heathrow (LHR) to Seychelles International Airport (SEZ). Choose the cabin to suit you, for comfort, style, or luxury, when you travel in First, Club World, World Traveller Plus or World Traveller.
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.

Around 10 hours. You’ll fly from London Heathrow (LHR) to Seychelles International Airport (SEZ). British Airways provides the only direct flights to Seychelles from London to the island of Mahé. Choose from two departures a week, with night flights on Wednesday and Saturday.
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.
If you have a British passport then you won’t need a visa for your holiday. You will receive a visitor’s permit upon arrival, which is valid for a month. Remember to check your passport is in date for your period of travel.
We offer a generous baggage allowance. Economy class customers can check in one bag each, weighing up to 23kg. Premium economy class customers can check in two 23kg bags. If you’re travelling in business class you can check in two bags at 32kg each. Travel in First and indulge with the option of three hold bags weighing in at 32kg each.

Which cabins can I book when I fly with British Airways?
Our economy class cabins are great value for those looking for cheap flights. For an extra fee, you can select your seats in advance – the quieter seats are towards the front of the plane. Sit directly above the wings to reduce the effects of any turbulence. Alternatively, select your seats for free 24 hours in advance when online check-in opens.
Premium economy class has more legroom and a smaller cabin with greater privacy. Enjoy the comforts of cosy cushions, blankets, eye masks, toothbrush, toothpaste and more features to ease your long-haul journey.
Our business class cabin has fully flat beds for total comfort, dining menus designed by top chefs and fast track priority through the airport, to make your journey even easier from the start.
First class cabins are the epitome of luxury, from fully flat beds in private suites, to exclusive lounge and spa access on the ground – enjoy ultimate exclusivity.

Our insider Seychelles tips will have you feeling holiday ready in no time
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.
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.
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.
