Air Seychelles' New Düsseldorf Flights in the Spotlight at ITB Berlin

Air Seychelles, the national airline of the Republic of Seychelles, hosted a media conference in the German capital yesterday as part of the run-up to the upcoming launch of its  Düsseldorf service.


Set to commence on 30 March, the twice-weekly service is being showcased at ITB Berlin,  the largest annual tourism fair in the world, which kicked off yesterday morning and is  expected to attract over 100,000 visitors.

The press conference panel was headed by Roy Kinnear, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Air Seychelles, who was joined by Thomas Schnalke, CEO of Düsseldorf Airport, Goetz Ahmelmann, Chief Commercial Officer at airberlin and Sherin Francis, CEO of the Seychelles Tourism Board.

Roy Kinnear, CEO of Air Seychelles, said: “In just three weeks’ time Air Seychelles will begin serving the great city of Düsseldorf, connecting our one-of-a-kind tropical islands to Germany. The excitement is building quickly and ITB Berlin, as the biggest travel exhibition in the world, is the perfect event to meet the future holidaymakers who will be flying with us."

During ITB Berlin, which runs from 8 until 12 March, Air Seychelles will have a presence at both the Seychelles Tourism Board and the airberlin stand, where visitors will be able to meet  cabin crew and learn more about the airline’s travel offerings.


The Air Seychelles service between Düsseldorf and Seychelles will be operated on a widebody Airbus A330 aircraft with 18 Business Class and 236 Economy Class seats.
