South African Airways (SAA) and Air Seychelles have entered into a codeshare agreement, effective 30 April.
SAA will initially place its code on Air Seychelles-operated flights from the Indian Ocean archipelago to Johannesburg.
Subject to approval, it will then also place its code on domestic flights between the two largest islands of the Seychelles - Mahé and Praslin.
The carriers will subsequently negotiate the possible placement of Air Seychelles' code on domestic South African flights operated by SAA out of Johannesburg.
In March, the Seychellois flag carrier increased frequencies on its Mahé-Johannesburg route to thrice weekly.
