Qatar Airways launches daily flight to Seychelles, 14th new destination of 2016
“Our aim is to provide our passengers with greater choice and variety when selecting their holiday destinations,” Qatar Airways Group CEO Akbar Al Baker said. “We are sure that the Seychelles is going to be a popular option with many travellers from Europe and the Middle East looking for an exotic island getaway. With this new service, holidaymakers can seamlessly connect to the Seychelles via our state-of-the-art home and hub in Doha, Hamad International Airport.”
The new destination for Qatar Airways represents an area of 115 tropical islands in the western Indian Ocean, located off the east coast of Africa. The airport to be serviced by the airline is on the island of Mahé in the city of Victoria.
“We are happy to have Qatar Airways, the world’s five-star airline, fly to Seychelles,” Minister for Tourism, Civil Aviation, Ports and Marine Alain St Ange said. “The array of scattered islands with their lush green natural landscapes, white sandy beaches, and turquoise blue sea promise visitors the adventure of a lifetime. The new services will add important value to the thriving tourism industry with huge potential to boost traffic from Europe and further expand the emerging Middle East and East Asia’s traveling markets amongst others.”
