Seychelles Tourism Board and Emirates hold workshop for European Tour Operators

  • Published by Vedat
In a move to further boost arrivals to the archipelago, the Seychelles Tourism Board and Emirates will hold a joint workshop for European tour operators on 28th May at the Constance Ephelia Resort, Seychelles.

The workshop will see the participation of leading tour operators from UK, France, Germany, Russia, and Denmark.

“The Seychelles destination is an important one for Emirates and this explains why we regularly engage in activities to promote the archipelago across our strong network. The Seychelles is popular with Emirates clients’ but we need to sustain its visibility in key markets,” stated Oomar Ramtoola, Emirates’ Manager for the Indian Ocean islands.

“With 12-weekly flights to the Seychelles, Emirates is the only airline offering three classes of travel; First Class, Business Class and Economy Class to the archipelago. We consider ourselves as a long-term partner of the tourism industry of the Seychelles. Our partnership with the Ministry of Tourism and the Seychelles Tourism Board is a very fruitful one,” added Mr. Ramtoola.

“Air accessibility is key to the development of any tourism destination and the Seychelles Tourism Board seizes every opportunity to work with partner airlines such as Emirates to continue to develop the market. The Emirates / Seychelles Tourism Board summit is happening at an opportune time. It will allow the local partners such as destination management companies and large hotels to discuss market opportunities, exchange market intelligence and consumer needs and explore special deals and business ventures/opportunities with Emirates sales and pricing managers with tour operators based in Europe”, said Elsia Grandcourt, CEO of the Seychelles Tourism Board

“A second summit will take place in June with tour operators based in Asia and other markets. It is important for us to include the core European markets, which we want to further consolidate, and the new emerging markets, which the destination is developing, in this summit to exchange ideas and continue to work together in planning the way forward”, added Mrs Grandcourt.

In February, Emirates and the Seychelles Tourism Board renewed their Memorandum of Understanding which aims at jointly promoting the destination throughout the airline’s network.
