Air France does only a codeshare with Air Seychelles.
Tell me you're kidding...
if not... EK is Emirates, based in Dubai [DXB].
You may not have heard of them. They're a relatively small airline, with few aircraft, even fewer aircraft orders. Its an airline that most likely will go bankrupt over the next 12 months, and its inflight service is appauling...

Quoting Hmmmm... (Reply 11): What can somebody tell me about Air Seychelles? Is it a top-notch airline with a good safety record or more of a third world carrier?
Well I don't know much about the airline except that they operate 767-300ER's on long haul flights to Mahe Island and they have not Ptv's. Because of that I would go on Emirates or Kenya Airways but some people may say that a little screen in the seatback in front of you does not matter. I do not think Air Seychelles is a third world carrier though.

Well I've flown on, at the time at least, 2/3 of their fleet. Flew a brand spanking new 737-700 and one of their 767-300's. Service was very good onboard and on the ground. I would not hesitate to fly with them again, so you should have no concerns with them, and hey, you would be flying a pretty exotic airline.

Pretty wild approach into there(at least from my vantage point in Victoria Harbor some years ago). You head straight for the side of the mountain, then do a sharp 90 degree left turn to final.
Always wanted to see what that looks like out of the front windows.
True, although if you're buying from Canada, it will almost certainly be an Air France ticket, and you'll probably have to go through them to board Air Seychelles (unless you have a clever travel agent, or are enterprising - and likely willing to pay more and construct your own connections).
Qatar Air, another Middle Eastern carrier, also serve the Seychelles. They're not quite as organized as Emirates, from what I hear, although the price might be competitive. Connections aplenty in Europe.
