The information presented is misleading and is causing confusion. The following statement was issued on social media yesterday to mitigate the potential effects:

Members of the public are advised that contrary to a publicised article, there is currently no flight lock-down issued by officials of the Seychelles Civil Aviation Authority. Due to the ongoing pandemic, many airlines have decided to temporarily suspend their service or reduce the frequency at which they operate. These details along with flight cancellations are available on our website www.scaa.sc

In light of this dynamic situation, we are uploading the international flight schedules daily on our social media platforms and will also be providing this to SBC. Our customer service desk can also be contacted on 4384075 from 06:00am to 09:00pm for flight inquiries.
