Emirates to Resume Service from Dubai to the Seychelles

Emirates to Resume Service from Dubai to the Seychelles

Emirates will resume passenger services from Dubai to the Seychelles from 1 August, coinciding with the country’s re-opening to international tourists, operating flights five times a week with a B777-300ER. The Seychelles has had just 108 cases of Covid-19 and no deaths.

With the gradual re-opening of borders over the summer, Emirates has revised its booking policies to offer customers more flexibility and confidence to plan their travel. Customers whose travel plans are disrupted by Covid-19 related flight or travel restrictions can simply hold on to their ticket, which will be valid for 24 months, and rebook to fly at a later time, request travel vouchers to offset against future Emirates purchases, or request refunds via an online form on Emirates’ website or via their travel agent.

Customers from Emirates’ network can now travel to Dubai as the city has re-opened for business and leisure visitors with new air travel protocols that safeguard the health and safety of visitors and communities.

Emirates has implemented a comprehensive set of measures at every step of the customer journey to ensure the safety of its customers and employees on the ground and in the air, including the distribution of complimentary hygiene kits containing masks, gloves, hand sanitiser and antibacterial wipes to all customers. For more information on these measures and the services available on each flight, visit: www.emirates.com/yoursafety

Customers are reminded that travel restrictions remain in place, and travellers will only be accepted on flights if they comply with the eligibility and entry criteria requirements of their destination countries. Visit: www.emirates.com/travelrestrictions
