Emirates has announced that it will be increasing the number of flights to Dubai from the Seychelles.
An Airbus A340 -500 aircraft is used by the route and offers 12 first class seats, 42 seats in business class and 258 seats in economy.
Majid Al Mualla, Emirates’ senior vice president commercial operations, West Asia & Indian Ocean, explained that it is the third new flight service on the Dubai to Seychelles route the carrier has introduced since the start of 2010.
He added: “This is a clear indication of our trust in the tourism industry of the Seychelles and demonstrates that all our marketing efforts are bearing their fruits.”
Emirates currently offers flights from Dubai to more than 100 destinations including Manchester, New York, Perth and Sydney.
