Seychelles Tourism Board moves on India


The Seychelles Tourism Board director of tourism marketing, Alain St. Ange, accompanied by the board’s tourism director for Asia and Australasia, Mrs. Myrna Michel, are joining Mr. Dick Esparon, the Seychelles high commissioner in India, for a series of meetings with tour operators and airlines in India in a bid to open their Creole Tropical Islands to the Indian Market.

Before leaving for India, Mr. St. Ange said that India remains an important potential market and one that can be tackled in earnest when direct and regular air links are in place. “We are going to India to pursue discussions with air carriers, and we are going there with the backing of a serious business group ready to guarentee seats in an airline for doing weekly runs to Seychelles,” St. Ange said.

The Seychelles delegation’s program has been coordinated by the Seychelles high commissioner in India, and by Mrs. Michel from the Seychelles Tourism Board’s office in Singapore, the office that has the responsibility for developing the Indian market for the Seychelles.
