Seychelles International Airport (SEZ) is seven miles (11km) southeast of the capital of Victoria on the island of Mahe in the Seychelles. This is a functional, efficient airport which should get you through and into your Seychelles vacation with no trouble at all. The airport is improving and expanding as passenger traffic increases, with new shops and facilities opening regularly.

Flights to Seychelles International Airport arrive from Europe, Africa, Asia and the Middle East. The airport is also a hub for inter-island travel, with several daily domestic flights.

Victoria is the only port in the Seychelles and one of the smallest capital cities in the world, with a population of just 25,000 people. Make sure you check out the city hall and post office in the center of town, which haven't changed since colonial times.
