South Africa's flag carrier, South African Airways (SAA), and the national airline of the Seychelles, Air Seychelles, have extended their codeshare agreement. The new deal will see Air Seychelles place its "HM" code on 18 SAA flights per week between Johannesburg and Cape Town, Durban, and Port Elizabeth, and five SAA flights per week between Johannesburg and East London. South African Airways in turn will place its "SA" code on six Air Seychelles flights per week between Mahé and Praslin.
South African Airways and Air Seychelles have also partnered on five additional flights between Mahé and Johannesburg on 14/21/28 December 2013 and 04/11 January 2014 to cater for the busy holiday season.
South African Airways and Air Seychelles first entered into their codeshare agreement in April 2013.
