"It is an honor to welcome and host HE Minister of Tourism and Culture of Seychelles, Mr. Alain St.Ange, in Sao Paulo, as we could not have a more warm and passionate ambassador than him to introduce Seychelles as the next destination for Brazilians.
“Impressed by the great interest of Brazilian tour operators and their 100% attendance to our Emirates & Seychelles event invitation at the restaurant Kaa in Sao Paulo, and in order to celebrate Minister St.Ange’s visit in Brazil, I am pleased to inform that Emirates will provide to all the tour operators, which joined us tonight in our beautiful event, with a very special air fare to the Seychelles via Dubai.
“As well, to reward the tour operators for their never-ending support, the 4 Seychelles best sellers will win free air tickets to the Seychelles, sponsored by Emirates, and hotel accommodation organized by the Seychelles Ministry of Tourism and Culture.
“Jointly with the government of Seychelles, we strongly believe in Seychelles being more than a leisure destination in Brazil, and that this joint partnership between tour operators, Seychelles government, and Emirates Airline will bring Seychelles closer to the heart of Brazilians," said Stephane Perard, the Emirates Area Manager in Brazil, as he addressed the 37 tour operators who were present at the special dinner hosted in honor of the visiting Tourism Minister from the Seychelles.
Alain St.Ange, the Seychelles Minister responsible for Tourism and Culture, said when he addressed the tour operators present that he was thankful for the encouraging news made by Emirates with a special airfare from Brazil to Seychelles via Dubai. "This special airfare launched to mark my working visit is most encouraging. Seychelles is the new holiday destination for Brazilians, and tonight we are kicking our drive to claim our fair share of this important market. If I am here, it is because I believe in the potential of Brazil as a key source market. Emirates has made a big step by announcing their special rates for Seychelles, we now need you, the Brazilian tour operators, to prepare quickly your new packages to make Seychelles your new destination for Brazilians looking for a holiday with a difference," said Minister Alain St.Ange as he thanked Emirates for the announcement.
Present also at the dinner was Gisele Abrahao of the Seychelles Tourism Board's Brazil Office and her team.
