Content marketing agency Houbara Communications works with clients to optimize content and conversations in an omnichannel world, creating maximum impact and delivering results for clients.
Loretta Ahmed, Founder and CEO of Houbara Communications said: “The announcement of the new flight route is not just a great milestone for Air Seychelles, but one that is a positive sign for the tourism industry of both countries, as national vaccination programmes are well underway and traveller confidence starts to build. We have the right mix of paid, shared and earned media to create a great impact to drive bookings for Air Seychelles.”
The Indian Ocean archipelago is among the world leaders in vaccinating its population, with almost 70 per cent inoculated. Similarly, the UAE recently announced that over 50 per cent of its population has received their Covid-19 vaccine, with both countries continuing to implement strict measures to curb the spread of the virus.
The seasonal flight schedule has been carefully timed to meet all travel segments, with departures from Dubai International Airport Terminal 3 set on Saturday mornings and returning flights on Friday afternoon, providing travellers a full week of relaxation in Seychelles at an affordable price.
“Tourism remains one of the main pillars of the Seychelles economy – with the UAE having a significant rate of its population vaccinated and Seychelles recently opening up to global tourism, we saw this as a great opportunity to launch this seasonal flight route. The advantages that it presents travellers, from the convenient flight timings, through to the attractive fare, create a great story and we are confident that Houbara Communications will help us tell it to the UAE audience in the most effective way,” commented Remco Althuis, CEO, Air Seychelles.
