Emirates has announced that it will resume passenger services to Seychelles from August 1, coinciding with the country’s re-opening to international tourists.

Operating flights to Seychelles five times a week with a Boeing 777-300ER, Emirates offers travellers convenient access to this popular Indian Ocean holiday destination. The Seychelles is an archipelago of 115 islands in the Indian Ocean, off East Africa.

Seychelles is home to numerous beaches, coral reefs and nature reserves, as well as rare animals such as giant Aldabra tortoises. Mahé, a hub for visiting the other islands, is home to capital Victoria. It also has the mountain rainforests of the Morne Seychellois National Park and beaches, including Beau Vallon and Anse Takamaka.

In addition, Emirates will increase its services to the Maldives from the current five a week, to six times a week from August 4 to meet customer demand.

For travellers in the UAE, Emirates Holidays offers great holiday packages with a selection of choice resorts in the Seychelles and the Maldives. It has also relaxed its booking policy to offer customers a chance to book a holiday package in advance with only a deposit of Dh199.
