Seychelles Airport is located on the largest island in Seychelles, Mahé. The airport is 6-7 miles from the center of the capital, Victoria. This route is easy to empty via the Providence Highway. You could do this with a rental car. There are several rental car companies at the airport such as Thrifty, Sixt, Tipoa, Creolepay and 3Click. There are also Seychelles departures by bus to Victoria for 35 cents. They run 2 to 3 times an hour from 7 am to 5 pm. Large suitcases are not allowed, so in most cases you have to use the taxi. To the center it costs about 4-6 usd and takes 15-20 minutes. There are 2 terminals at the airport for domestic Seychelles Arrivals and international Seychelles Mahé Airport Arrivals. There are often transfers from one terminal to another to reach other islands of the Seychelles.
The domestic terminal has many flights to the other island of Praslin. Another option to continue traveling by ferry after arrival. The ferry departs from Victoria and sails first to Praslin Island and then on to La Digue. From these two islands there are departures to even smaller islands where the many resorts are located.
Due to the corona virus, there are many fewer arrivals & departures at the airport. The Seychelles are highly dependent on tourism, which means that tourists only return when the virus is no longer prevalent. In 2019 (without corona) there were 744,000 international passengers who used the airport on the island of Mahe. About 90 percent of this had the purpose of ‘holiday’. In that year there were many passengers from Poland, Russia, UK, Italy, France, Germany, Switzerland, South Africa, China, India, Israel, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Turkey and USA. In 2020, however, it was only 192 thousand passengers. Looking at the first months of 2021, there are still few Seychelles Airport Arrivals. The Seychelles are promoting themselves internationally so hopefully there will be more and more Seychelles Airport Departures.
