Seychelles had held several destination marketing events in Dublin having its first time penetration into the heart of Ireland. ‘It was most satisfying to see the turn out, interest and support that we received from the Irish Travel Trade’, though we held the same marketing events in Dublin said Miss Wadia. She then added that many agents supported sales to the destination in view of the excellent air access to the Seychelles from Dublin, Ireland – as Etihad and Emirates fly twice daily from the Irish capital (4 flights per day) – via their respective hubs in the Middle East and then twice a day on to Mahe.
Due to the Nature beauty and leisurely island setting of Seychelles many Irish tourists are now eager to take holidays in a safe new destination in Africa. Besides all agents who attended the marketing events vowed to market the Seychelles more & more as an affordable destination which suits every budget year round travelers.
