Air Seychelles, the national airline of the Republic of Seychelles, and Hong Kong Airlines, an internationally-acclaimed SKYTRAX 4-star airline, have signed a codeshare agreement to provide travellers with enhanced connections in Asia, Africa and the Middle East.

Under the codeshare agreement, Air Seychelles will place its ‘HM’ code on Hong Kong Airlines’ flights between Hong Kong and the capital of Thailand, Bangkok. In return, Hong Kong Airlines will place its ‘HX’ code on Air Seychelles’ flights between the Seychelles and Hong Kong, as well as between Hong Kong and Abu Dhabi, capital of the United Arab Emirates#.

The agreement was signed this week by Manoj Papa, Chief Executive Officer of Air Seychelles, and Li Dianchun, Commercial Director of Hong Kong Airlines.

Manoj Papa said: “We are delighted to expand our network of codeshare partners with the addition of Hong Kong Airlines. As a leading international tourism destination, the Seychelles attracts a large number of travellers from across Asia, and through our codeshare agreement with Hong Kong Airlines, we are confident these volumes will continue to flourish. At the same time, residents of the Seychelles will benefit from direct access to the global finance and tourism hub of Hong Kong.”

Li Dianchun said: “This codeshare agreement is part of a comprehensive strategy to open up new markets and offer more choices to Hong Kong Airlines’ passengers. Our partner Air Seychelles is a well-respected airline that will successfully broaden our reach to the Seychelles and Abu Dhabi, two of the world’s fastest-growing and most exciting travel destinations. The agreement enables passengers to book any Hong Kong Airlines flight originating from China, Japan and Southeast Asia toAbu Dhabi and the Seychelles connecting through the Hong Kong hub. We anticipate strong demand on these routes and look forward to building our cooperation with Air Seychelles in the future.”
