Etihad announces Abu Dhabi-Seychelles route

Etihad Airways has launched flights from Abu Dhabi to Male in the Seychelles, subject to government approval. Four return services will be operated on the route from 1 November, using an Airbus A320. “The Seychelles has strong and growing appeal as a premium leisure destination, with increasing numbers of UAE residents and European travellers holidaying there,” said James Hogan, CEO of Etihad. “With the recent honeymoon of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, the Seychelles is likely to gain new interest as a destination of choice.” He said he hopes the route will attract European travellers as well as the GCC market.
