Fourteen Seychelles nationals stranded here to fly back on Saturday

Air Seychelles will repatriate 14 Seychellois nationals stranded in Sri Lanka due to the COVID-19 pandemic on a special flight on Saturday.

The special flight will also repatriate Seychelles nationals stranded in India, the Seychelles News Agency quoting the country’s Department of Foreign Affairs said.

A statement issued by the News Agency went on to say that the repatriation has been identified as a priority as it consists of many Seychellois patients who were undergoing treatment in India and Sri Lanka both with government financial assistance and privately. This fully-funded government-sponsored flight will carry 81 Seychelles nationals from Chennai in India which include 42 patients and attendants, and 14 patients and attendants from Sri Lanka. Those who have already paid their tickets can contact the airline as soon as they arrive in Seychelles for a refund.

In line with guidance from the Department of Health, Air Seychelles has announced new strict guidelines that passengers have to follow during check-in, boarding, in-flight, and upon disembarkation, to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
