In order to meet rising passenger demand, Qatar Airways has announced plans to upgrade service on its Seychelles route to an Airbus 330 aircraft, starting 29 October 2017.
This is as the airline prepares to celebrate its one-year anniversary of flying to the Seychelles later this year.
A statement by Mohamed Elkahlout of the Corporate Communications Department of Qatar Airways said that the 260-seater A330 aircraft would increase the airline’s current daily capacity by 130 per cent on the route, connecting Seychelles-based passengers to more than 150 destinations globally.
The statement quoted Mr. Akbar Al Baker, Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive as saying that the airline was delighted to be introducing its Airbus A330 aircraft on the route to Seychelles.
He said by providing more capacity on board the A330, the carrier would be able to offer even more passengers from around the globe the opportunity to experience the idyllic white sand beaches of the Seychelles.
“This enhancement to our offering demonstrates our commitment to the local market and to the many passengers each month who choose to fly to this popular destination with Qatar Airways.
“Qatar Airways launched service to the Seychelles in December 2016, and has since contributed to the development of tourism and the growth of local business in the Seychelles,” he added.
The Airbus A330 aircraft, which features 24 seats in business class and 236 seats in economy class, enables passengers to enjoy the airline’s superior entertainment system, Oryx One, offering countless entertainment options.
Business class passengers can also relax in flatbed seats, offering an unsurpassed standard of comfort on board.
Qatar Airways operates to 20 destinations in Africa, including Addis Ababa, Algiers, Cape Town, Casablanca, Durban, Johannesburg, Khartoum, Lagos, Marrakech, Nairobi and Zanzibar, among others.
Qatar Airways will be adding many more exciting destinations to its network in 2017 and 2018, including Canberra, Australia; Chiang Mai, Thailand and St. Petersburg, Russia, to name a few.
The national carrier of the State of Qatar is one of the fastest-growing airlines operating one of the youngest fleets in the world.
Now in its 20th year of operations, Qatar Airways has a modern fleet of 200 aircraft flying to business and leisure destinations across six continents.
