Emirates renews partnership with Mauritius and Seychelles

Posted 25 April 2017 · Add Comment

Emirates has today renewed individual global marketing agreements with Mauritius and Seychelles by extending the MoU with the respective Tourism Boards of the two countries.

The MoUs were signed on the sideline of the region’s largest travel trade event, Arabian Travel Market (ATM), by Orhan Abbas, Emirates’ Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations for Africa, Kevin Ramkaloan, director of the Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority, and Sherin Francis, Chief Executive Officer of the Seychelles Tourism Board in presence of Maurice Loustau-Lalanne, Minister for Tourism, Civil Aviation, Ports and Marine in Seychelles.

"Our relationship with Mauritius and Seychelles is very important to us. Our success on the routes to these island destinations is the result of relentless efforts by all parties. Our joint activities have been fruitful and this can be demonstrated by the fact that we operate a double-daily service to both destinations; the Mauritius route being served by an Emirates A380,” said Mr Abbas.

“We are thankful for the support we receive from the Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority and the Seychelles Tourism Board. We look forward to achieving even more together and strengthen our support to the destinations,” he added. 

Various joint activities will be developed under the agreement, such as attendance of tourism trade shows and fairs, trade familiarisation trips, product presentations and workshops.

“We are delighted to renew our partnership with Emirates to create greater awareness of our beautiful destination through joint media and trade activities. The facilities extended by Emirates to the Mauritian trade through discounted tickets to MTPA-supported trade fairs and roadshows will certainly benefit the local industry.” said Kevin Ramkaloan.

“It is always a pleasure to be able to renew this relationship with one of our airline partners. Connectivity is key to the development of our destination and we are very grateful for all the marketing support given by Emirates throughout the year.  I am looking forward to another fruitful year of collaboration,” said Sherin Francis.
