Edelweiss to Resume Flights to Seychelles  

Edelweiss is resuming direct flights from Zurich to Mahé in Seychelles, beginning 26th September. This is the airline’s second long-haul destination besides Punta Cana to where flight services can be resumed.

Crystal-clear water, white-sand beaches and perfect temperatures all year round: Seychelles is at the top of almost every traveller’s bucket list, and for good reason. This island paradise caters to families, scuba divers and water sports enthusiasts alike. Beginning 26th September, Edelweiss will operate a weekly direct flight from Zurich to the main Seychelles island of Mahé arriving there in less than ten hours.

Patrick Heymann, Chief Commercial Officer of Edelweiss: “We are delighted to resume flights to the island of Mahé in Seychelles and, thus, to another long-haul destination. The Seychelle Islands are hugely popular with snorkellers and scuba divers, but also a choice go-to for sun seekers, offering year-round sunshine and summer temperatures.”

Flights to Mahé are available for booking at flyedelweiss.com and via the usual sales channels.

Entry requirements applicable for the Seychelle Islands

There have been very few registered cases of COVID-19 in Seychelles since the start of the pandemic and the island country has been almost coronavirus-free for several weeks now. To make sure it stays that way the Seychellois authorities have issued entry requirements, available on the Edelweiss website:


Any flight timetable changes that become necessary due to new or reintroduced entry restrictions will be communicated promptly. Edelweiss will continue to guarantee free and flexible rebooking options, so that travel can be planned worry-free.
