German charter company, Condor Airlines, will resume regular flights to Seychelles on December 18.
The direct weekly flight from Frankfurt to Mahé will be serviced by a 270-seat Boeing 767, departing Frankfurt every Friday.
This news follows the arrival this week of a special charter flight on November 14, which brought over 220 visitors to the Indian Ocean island for a seven-day holiday. The visit was conducted in collaboration with German tour operator, DER Touristik, and the Seychelles Tourism Board (STB) to encourage visitors from Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
“Our collaboration with Condor and DER Touristik was in anticipation of the resumption of the Condor flights at the end of the year. We are glad to see that interest from our visitors and partners from the market is still present. Germany remains a very important market for Seychelles and, as such, it is vital that we remain very close with our partners,” said STB CEO, Sherin Francis.
To ensure the success of the venture, 16 local accommodation partners created packages, which included special honeymoon packages for newlyweds, a booming market segment for the island.
In line with the new travel prerequisites to enter Seychelles, the various packages also included a travel health insurance required for entry with COVID-19 coverage.
