Two additional weekly flights increase choices available to travellers
Emirates, a global connector of people and places, has announced it will step up its operations to the Seychelles by increasing services to double daily later this year.
The introduction of two more flights per week on the route into the Seychelles will increase the existing 12 scheduled flights to fourteen bringing operations to double daily from the 28th of October this year.
“Emirates’ decision to commit two additional scheduled flights a week is a clear indication of customer demand, both for our award-winning product and the wealth of attractions that this popular destination has to offer,” said Orhan Abbas, Emirates’ Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations, Latin America, Central and Southern Africa. “Emirates’ expanded schedule provides better connectivity and a wider choice for our customers connecting through Dubai. These additional seats every week are central to helping us meet the growing demand and support the Seychelles tourism industry,” he continued.
Emirates operates an Airbus A340-500 on the route, offering customers a choice of cabins with 12 luxurious private suites in First Class, 42 deeply reclining Business Class seats and plenty of room to relax in Economy Class, where there are 204 seats available.
Passengers can enjoy the award-winning ice entertainment system, with hundreds of channels of on-demand entertainment to choose from, including movies from around the world, TV channels, audio channels, video games and news headlines.
Emirates customers also have the opportunity to enjoy meals prepared by gourmet chefs and exceptional service from the international cabin crew recruited from over 130 nationalities, speaking over 55 languages. They receive a generous baggage allowance, with 30kg for those travelling in Economy Class, 40kg for Business Class and 50kg for First Class.
