This achievement has been made possible with the continued support of our partners that is the government of Madagascar, airport authorities, among others. The seasonal service providing a total of 8,432 seats will, in addition, offer convenient air links for business and leisure travellers planning their trip to Mumbai or Abu Dhabi with seamless connectivity in less than three hours over Seychelles.
