Emirates, a global connector of people and places, will step up its operations to the Seychelles by increasing services to double daily later this year.

Currently operating 12 flights a week to the Seychelles, Emirates will introduce two more flights per week on this route from 28thOctober.
“Today’s announcement that we are increasing flight frequency demonstrates that when we signed the renewed Memorandum of Understanding between our company and the Seychelles Tourism Board just a few days ago, we really meant what we said. We are truly committed to our support for the tourism industry in the Seychelles and remain confident that the joint initiatives we are discussing to promote the archipelago will be well received and mutually beneficial,” said Orhan Abbas, Emirates’ Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations, Latin America, Central and Southern Africa.
“On behalf of the Ministry of Tourism and Culture and the Seychelles Tourism Board, I congratulate Emirates on the announcement that Seychelles will be served with two additional flights per week, offering customers excellent choice with its three-class configuration. This is indeed good news for our tourism industry which remains the pillar of our country’s economy. Emirates has been a strong partner and the increase of flights to double daily shows the commitment of the airline to the Seychelles. It also indicates Emirates’ belief that the Seychelles tourism industry is today, more than ever before, on a firm footing”, said Alain St. Ange, Minister of Tourism and Culture for the Seychelles.
Emirates operates its 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.
Emirates and the Seychelles Tourism Board are in continuous dialogue to exchange ideas and implement a range of joint initiatives aimed at promoting the destination not just in Emirates’ hub Dubai, but beyond across the carrier’s expanding global network.
