ADAC signs MOU for Seychelles International development

Posted 16 October 2016 · Add Comment

Abu Dhabi Airports Company (ADAC) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Seychelles Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Transport to explore how it will develop the country's international airport on Mahe.

 

The MOU was signed by ADAC Chairman H.E. Ali Majed Al Mansoori and H.E. Joel Morgan, Seychelles Minister for Foreign Affairs and Transport.

“As the Seychelles grows in popularity as a holiday destination for UAE tourists and visitors from around the world, the need to keep up with the demands and expectations of the travel market has never been more important. Our aim is to help to deliver an updated passenger terminal operating to the highest international standards,” said Al Mansoori.

The Seychelles Minister said the MOU confirmed an interest by both parties to enter into talks discussing “the future and way forward of our operations at Seychelles International Airport.”

The Minister said discerning travellers, including Seychellois, are demanding more from their travel experience, which starts at the airport. “Seychelles International Airport has the potential to deliver much, much more, and this MOU signifies that ADAC believes in us and the growing opportunities in the Seychelles. This approach will also confirm to all our airline partners who have been flying to Seychelles, or who have recently announced their intention to fly to Seychelles, that something more is being done that will have the potential to positively compliment their efforts. For our national carrier, Air Seychelles, this provides the opportunity to grow their product and range of services even further.”
