Meeting in London at World Travel Market

Seychelles Tourism Board hears plans from Ethiopian Airlines

Nov 11, 2011

Alain St.Ange, CEO of the Seychelles Tourism Board, accompanied by Bernadette Willemin and Marsha Parcou, the Seychelles Tourism Board’s Director for Europe and the Manager for the UK, respectively, met with Rahel Assefa, Ethiopian Airline’s Regional Manager for UK & Ireland, and Michael Yohannes, the Airline’s Senior Sales Executive for the UK, when the two delegations were at the 2011 World Travel Market (WTM) Tourism Trade Fair in the UK.

Ethiopian Airlines is launching flights to the tourism islands of the Seychelles starting from November 15. The new Ethiopian flights will be connecting the Seychelles to Addis Ababa in Ethiopia and on to the world four times a week.

The Seychelles delegation and that from Ethiopian Airlines discussed the first flights to the Seychelles, the marketing strategy that could be developed to ensure visibility of the airline as a carrier with flights to Seychelles, and the future approach in cooperation between the Seychelles Tourism Board and Ethiopian Airlines.

“The Seychelles Tourism Board values all its partners, and we needed to make time to meet with Ethiopian Airlines, the latest airline to introduce a regular flight service to Seychelles. It was important for the Tourism Board to hear the plans of Ethiopian Airlines and see with them how the island’s Tourism Board could stand behind them in their drive to increase their bookings on flights to Seychelles,” Alain St.Ange said.

Ethiopian Airlines is one of the main airlines of Africa, with a determination that Africa must work with Africa. They have now included Seychelles in their long list of African destinations they link to the world.
