The MOU, which strengthens and opens up the air connectivity between the member island states, was signed by the Seychelles Minister Alain St.Ange, the sitting President of VIO and the Air Madagascar CEO, Hughes Ratsiferana.
This significant development paves the way for one of the Vanilla Islands Organisation’s key objectives and main marketing strategies of opening up the Indian Ocean region to the world by increasing air access and better link the member states. This is crucial to the development of twin and multi center holidays.
It is expected that more regional airlines such as Air Austral, Air Mauritius and Air Seychelles will be joining the Vanilla Islands Organisation in this partnership to further its aims and raison d’etre and increase exposure of the region in win-win cooperation. The President of the Vanilla Islands said that airlines providing air link to the region were also invited to also be part of this drive in the latest tourism destination and to be part of the spirit of courage and imagination driving the Vanilla Islands Group.
