Seychelles visibility set to increase further now that Turkish Airlines moves on pushing Vanilla Islands through roadshows
Turkish Airlines is set to start its Seychelles operations effective the end of September. Seychelles will be third islands in the Vanilla islands Group that will now be served by Turkish following the successful operations they already have in Mauritius and Madagascar.
As the news was spreading that Turkish Airline was starting to launch dedicated marketing roadshows in targeted tourism source markets, a Seychellois Hotelier forwarded the photo of a Turkish Airline on the tarmac at Mauritius saying he was happy to see that Turkish Airline would be offering a special discount for the tourism trade to their promotional event.
This first dedicated series of Roadshow will take the Indian Ocean Vanilla Islands tourism trade to Bucharest, Budapest and Prague from the 5th to the 9th September. These events will bring together hotels and DMCs from Vanilla Islands and agencies and tour operators from Central Europe.
The Seychelles Tourism Board have confirmed their participation and will talk about Seychelles during this series of roadshows sponsored by Turkish Airline. Discussions are also taking place with the airline for familiarization visits by the travel trade and for press trips to Seychelles.
