why are air fares with air seychelles now expensive

right this is our third year of coming to the Seychelles and have always flown from mahe to praslin with air Seychelles for about £130 now this year I have had a shock when I went to book it has risen to £300 that is a very big rise for such a short flight and seems very expensive that I am now looking to go by ferry ( don't know how much this costs yet can anyone enlighten me )

what do you guys think of this price hike

Hello Ray!

Nice to see you back... To Seychelles.

I was surprised by your post so I made a checking exercise on Air Seychelles site and for October prices start from 110 euro pp return trip. For which month were you quoted 300 GBP?

Ferry price is 100 euro if you book with www.seychellesbookings.com

Well, prices are different and depend on day and time of departure. When would you like to fly? I'd look for the best rates.

lol I really must put my glasses on when posting the price I paid last year was £210 and has gone up to £300 which I feel is a lot for the same times on flights but maybe that's me

There are several return flights in November at 110 euro pp. I have not found any flights at 300 GBP pp. So Barbel try to arrange your flights in such way to get the lowest price possible: www.airseychelles.com.

ok an update I suppose it pays to wait sometimes as I did not book the flights before and I just went to book them and booking the same flights as before and instead of £300 it came out at £180 .

I could not believe it and it was cheaper than the ferry mrs will be happy .
