Air Austral and STB agree on increase in flights to Seychelles


04-July-2009

The announcement was made after meetings between Gérard Ethève, the president of Air Austral, and his delegation and Alain St Ange, the director of tourism marketing.

The Air Austral delegation has been in Seychelles this week for meetings with the government and also with the STB to discuss the relaunch of the country as a tourism destination in Reunion.

“We are happy that we have agreed to work together to relaunch Seychelles in Reunion,” said Mr St Ange.

“We have a good potential in that market and we will now work with Air Austral to increase the number of visitors from our sister island of Reunion.”

A trade workshop is being planned for the end of August, at which Mr St Ange and the chairman of the Seychelles Hospitality and Tourism Association, Louis D’Offay, will be joined by Mr Ethève to address a press conference in Saint-Denis.

Air access to Seychelles remains a key to the success of the country’s tourism industry, and the STB was happy with this latest announcement by Air Austral.

Only last month Kenya Airways announced it will be introducing a third flight to Seychelles, starting next week.
