Sep 13, 2011

Alain St.Ange, the CEO of the Seychelles Tourism Board, met with Rashed Saif Al Shabi, Etihad Airways' Business Development Manager for Seychelles at a meeting at the Tourism Board’s Bel Ombre Offices.

Discussions centered on the start of the Etihad Airways flights to Seychelles starting this coming November and the airline’s Seychelles Offices at the islands' international airport.

Etihad Airways will be the third Middle East Airline to serve the Seychelles route when they launch their operation this coming November with their four weekly flights from Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates.

Alain St.Ange told the press, following that courtesy call by Mr. Rashed Saif Al Shabi, that Seychelles welcomes the start of operations by Etihad Airways and that the Tourism Board remains ready to work with them in promoting their airline and in so doing the Seychelles.
