DUBAI, United Arab Emirates: Emirates has announced it will operate double daily flights to Seychelles from Dec. 24, 2021 to January 9, 2022 to serve market demand during the busy holiday season.
The added service will offer customers more travel choices, flexibility and enhanced connectivity to the island-nation.
Emirates currently operates a daily flight to Seychelles utilizing its Boeing 777-300ER aircraft. The second daily service will boost tourism to the popular Indian Ocean destination this winter holiday, especially from popular inbound markets including France, Germany, U.K., Russia, Italy, Switzerland, Poland, U.S., UAE, and KSA.
From Jan. 10, 2022, the airline will serve the country with 10 weekly flights, 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 Board at Expo 2020. The agreement reaffirms the airline’s commitment to the island-nation, and outlines various initiatives to promote trade and tourism to the country.
