16 May, 2014

Emirates, a global connector of people and places, has announced it will step up its operations to the Seychelles by increasing services to double daily later this year.
The introduction of two more flights per week on the route into the Seychelles will increase the existing 12 scheduled flights to fourteen bringing operations to double daily from the 28th of October this year.
Emirates operates an Airbus A340-500 on the route, offering customers a choice of cabins with 12 luxurious private suites in First Class, 42 deeply reclining Business Class seats and plenty of room to relax in Economy Class, where there are 204 seats available.
Passengers can enjoy the award-winning ice entertainment system, with hundreds of channels of on-demand entertainment to choose from, including movies from around the world, TV channels, audio channels, video games and news headlines.
Emirates customers also have the opportunity to enjoy meals prepared by gourmet chefs and exceptional service from the international cabin crew recruited from over 130 nationalities, speaking over 55 languages. They receive a generous baggage allowance, with 30kg for those travelling in Economy Class, 40kg for Business Class and 50kg for First Class.

The Seychelles comprises 115 pristine, tropical islands, 1,600 km from the East coast of Africa. This archipelago contains the only mid-ocean granitic islands on the planet and offers sanctuaries for numerous endemic species of flora and fauna that are amongst the rarest on earth. The islands are also home to two UNESCO World Heritage sites: The Vallée de Mai, upon whose ancient palms grows the wondrous Coco-de-mer and fabled Aldabra, the largest raised atoll in the world. Throughout the islands there are unparalleled opportunities for sailing on bare-boat or skippered yacht, deep-sea and fly-fishing as well as a broad diversity of dive experiences for the novice and experienced diver alike.

Emirates operates four scheduled flights each week between Larnaka and Dubai: every Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday. On these days in the morning, EK107 arrives from Dubai while in the afternoon EK108 arrives from Malta on its flight back to Dubai. From 1st August the airline will add three more flights a week and will be operating a daily scheduled flight between Dubai and Cyprus and onwards to Malta.
