For this new market to Seychelles, the initial phase is to introduce the national flag carrier and destination Seychelles to the people of Kazakhstan.
After this awareness and interest is built, a more long-term series of flights will commence in October for the winter months. The first flight set to depart Almaty International Airport on 02nd of August proceeding over 9 hours is expected to land at the Seychelles International Airport by mid-morning on 03 rd of August, 2021.
The plans underscore the ongoing efforts by Tourism Seychelles to tap into new markets and bring much needed tourists, and their dollars, to the islands where tourism is a cornerstone of the local economy.
