Via AirlineRoute (and a note to some other bloggers out there: it’s really not hard to quote your sources when blatantly copying their material), Ethiopian Airlines will resume it’s previously cancelled service to Seychelles in late September 2014. This provides the only option within the Star Alliance network for getting to the Seychelles, and with service to their Addis Abada hub from Washington DC and Toronto, provides a one-stop option from a couple of major North American hubs.
Seychelles is an exceptionally beautiful destination with beaches that can genuinely vie for “best beach in the world” type pronouncements. It remains difficult to get to despite this addition but is worth it in my opinion. You can read my destination guide for details of how to get there and stay there.
