Reunion: Reunion and the Seychelles join forces for the development of combined stays

On the occasion of the opening of Reunion/ Seychelles by Air Austral, île de Réunion tourism (IRT) organises, in partnership with the Seychelles Tourism Board (STB), workshops Tuesday 8 and Wednesday, April 9, 2014. Open to the receptive agencies as well as hotels and resorts, these workshops allow the tourist service providers of the two islands to exchange their know-how for the implementation of combined Reunion/ Seychelles.
In the context of Vanilla Islands, Reunion Island and the Seychelles join in the creation of combined stays to long-haul travellers. For Patrick Serveaux, Vice President of the IRT, it comes to "find all the solutions to open the Reunionese sky."
 June 23, 2014, Air Austral will inaugurate the new line Reunion/ Seychelles. With the reinstatement of this air shaft, the Director of the association vanilla Islands, Pascal Viroleau, said that it is "a first step which augurs the strengthening of packages between Reunion and the Seychelles in order to offer a quality product." Although the issue of entry of the Seychellois on the Reunionese island territory, it is noted that firm commitments of tour operators have already been contracted, particularly in terms of allocations. 
In this context, workshops are underway so that Reunionese and Seychellois tourist providers can meet and thus exchange information and know-how. The objective of these workshops is "the implementation of a product needs and which works in both meaning", recalls Pascal Viroleau. 
The Seychelles are a visitor on the rise coming from many countries in the world. In 2013, more than 230,000 are travellers who visited the Seychelles, including nearly 37,000 visitors from Asia and more than 6,000 coming from the American continent.
The exponential development of the travels abroad of Asian residents attracts the lust of almost all of the tourist destinations. From 2013, the new Chinese Government officially opened the country's borders in outbound tourism. However, few countries have so far managed to capture a significant share of tourist flows issued by China, the Japan, the India or even the Korea. 
Although the visibility of Reunion Island is still shy on these markets, it is for the destination to diversify its customer base. The meeting may need to open up to new markets emerging and to meet the problems posed by the decline in the flows come from France and Europe, due in large part to the economic crisis that impacted these countries.
