Group CEO Ethiopian Airlines, Mr. Tewolde GebreMariam, said: “Air transport being a vital component of the tourist appeal and the driving factor for economic growth in general, we have been serving our beloved continent for 7 decades, offering convenient connectivity options to more than 52 African cities.  Seychelles being Africa’s premier tourist destination, with the natural attractions of the archipelagos, we have now added a fifth weekly service to provide more options for passengers flying from any part of the world to the Seychelles and vice versa through our strategic hub at Addis Ababa. As per our growth strategy, vision 2025, we shall continue to increase our presence in Africa, so as to better promote and facilitate growth in the business and tourism sectors.



Alain St.Ange, the Seychelles Minister responsible for Tourism and Culture, has welcomed this increase in frequency by Ethiopian Airlines. “This latest announcement is music to our ears and to the tourism industry of Seychelles. We depend entirely on air access for the consolidation of our tourism industry. Five flights a week by Ethiopian Airlines is indeed good news,” Minister St.Ange said to Meseret Tekalign, the Area Manager of Ethiopian Airlines based in Seychelles.
