The director general for Destination Planning and Development in the Tourism Department, Bernadette Willemin, told SNA that “this decision comes as a blessing to us, especially during the festive season when the demand to visit our paradise is quite high. Emirates has been a loyal airline partner, with international connections all over the globe, which means more seat capacity and frequency from numerous destinations, contributing to the Seychelles tourism industry.”
Tourism is the top contributor to the economy of Seychelles, an archipelago in the western Indian Ocean.
The Dubai-based airline currently operates a daily flight to Seychelles utilising its Boeing 777-300ER aircraft. From January 10 next year, the airline will offer 10 weekly flights to Seychelles including a double daily service on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.
Earlier this year, Emirates renewed its commitment to Seychelles by signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Seychelles Tourism Department at the Dubai Expo 2020 in October. The agreement reaffirmed the airline’s commitment to the island nation and outlines various initiatives to promote trade and tourism to the country.
