Seychelles tourism news update – Emirates and STB invite ‘best sellers’ to 2nd Carnival Festival edition


Four top selling travel agents will enjoy a visit to the Seychelles next year, for the second edition of the Carnaval de Carnivals – the ‘mother’ of all carnival celebrations when the leading ‘carnival nations’ will again be represented in Victoria in the main parade with floats and participants.

Travel agencies from the Gulf states but also from European gateways of Emirates will learn in February next year who topped the sales scales and will as a reward receive free tickets from the airline and a four night complimentary stay, courtesy of the Seychelles Tourist Board.

This ‘incentive’ is bound to raise a lot more interest and spur efforts by travel agents to ‘push’ Seychelles in their ticket sales, made easier of course by Emirates Holidays offering a range of superb holiday options in conjunction with their flights. The airline presently flies 12 times a week to the archipelago but by end of this year will offer a double daily flight option out of Dubai, linking their entire global network to the Seychelles with only one stop en route, and a short one for that matter.

The Seychelles Tourist Board was only months ago crowned by Emirates as ‘Best Tourist Board partner’ affirming the close ties the airline has developed in the recent past with STB in order to promote the islands attractions across the airline’s global destination network. See you at the ‘Carnaval International de Victoria’ is now the hope of hundreds of travel agents vying with each other to be the chosen ones.

Good Luck to All.
