German charter airline, Condor, has resumed non-stop flights from Frankfurt to the Seychelles. The first flight, operated by a Boeing 767-300 aircraft, touched down at Seychelles International Airport on October 2.
Bernadette Willemin, European Director of the Seychelles Tourism Board, called the return “a great step in our recovery, especially as the German market is one of the best-performing source markets for Seychelles”. “The resumption of the flights comes at the right time as well, as the German government eases travel requirements for German nationals and residents travelling to Seychelles.”
Willemin also confirmed that Tourism Seychelles would be working with airlines, travel industry partners and media, and would step up its consumer campaigns to win back visitors from its key source markets.
"Our efforts are now concentrated on getting back our visitors from Germany and neighbouring countries. With the arrival of Condor, we are eagerly anticipating a boost in visitor arrival numbers," she said.
