Remco Althuis, chief executive of Air Seychelles, said: “Since the reopening of Seychelles to the world, visitors have been looking at destinations providing ease of access upon entry for their travel. Seychelles is now becoming an increasingly attractive destination and as the flag carrier, it is important that we seize business opportunities once available to recover and sustain our operations.
“We are pleased to establish the bridge with Romania through the charter opportunities to support tourism, trade and economic development in the Seychelles.”
