From March 2018 British Airways will operate a twice weekly route between London Heathrow and the Seychelles. A spectacularly idyllic archipelago of 115 islands, the Seychelles lie just off the coast of East Africa’s Madagascar. With picture-perfect beaches, coral reefs and nature reserves, this destination makes a refreshingly quiet alternative to other long-haul beach destinations and provides the ultimate sunshine escape.
The route will be operated on British Airways Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft specifically designed to enhance customer wellbeing. The new fuel-efficient aircraft has smoothride technology, which minimises the effects of turbulence and creates a more comfortable journey plus lower pressurisation results in cabin air that is less dry, reducing the effects of jet lag.
On-board the British Airways Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner every customer has access to their own personal entertainment system with an array of audio and video on-demand programmes and movies. The aircraft boasts our newest First cabin, with extra storage space, larger personal flat-screen television and of course, a world-renowned service.
