Seychelles islands have seen an increase of 207% in tourist arrivals from India for the period January-November 2015, compared to the same period last year with Seychelles India office’s making continuous innovative marketing strategies, educating and hand holding the travel trade, the Seychelles Tourism Board said in a release.
It also added that the start of direct flights between the two nations, year-long tourist season and visa on arrival have been other key factors boosting the tourist arrivals from India.
“We are thrilled with the phenomenal response from the India market in just the second year of us opening office here”, Seychelles Tourism Board CEO Sherin Naiken said.
“I strongly believe that this achievement has been possible in such a short time because of a very good team work with Air Seychelles, the DMCs and the resorts. We are geared up and excited for 2016 and are confident that we will keep this momentum alive,” Naiken added.
