Seychelles: Strategic commercial agreement between Air Seychelles and Etihad to serve the Kuwait
The national airline Air Seychelles and the Abu Dhabi (Etihad) concluded at the end of last week, a new strategic agreement aimed at the sharing of code-share * for the servicing of the Kuwait.
 
The Air Seychelles company part-owned by Etihad may use its code of HM international flight on flights operated by the company in Abu Dhabi between Kuwait and Abu Dhabi.
 
The two companies partner airlines thus serve Kuwait, at the rate of 10 scheduled flights per week.
Air Seychelles knows a consequent increase in its air traffic, from the Persian Gulf, in the order of 25% this year compared with the first months of 2012.
 
"We are very pleased to offer our passengers the destination of the Kuwait, through our partner Etihad Airways. The Kuwait is one of the richest countries per capita in the world and is home to a growing leisure market. You can now buy flights to Kuwait, with a single ticket, which makes for the journey simpler and more transparent", said Cramer Ball, CEO of Air Seychelles.
Cramer Ball also indicated that travelers from the Persian Gulf region are markedly (23%) in comparison to 2012.
 
"It is therefore natural that we target this regions in expansion. We are confident in the fact that the new flights with two hours of correspondence in Abu Dhabi, will stimulate the growth of the region by providing a new source of revenue for the airline as well as for the local economy", said the Director-general of Air Seychelles, Cramer Ball.

Through this new partnership of code-share with Etihad, Air Seychelles now spreads its wings to the Gulf Persian (Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Bahrain, Kuwait and Oman), with 64 flights per week.
 
(*) The sharing of code-share is based on trade agreements between different carriers.
Code sharing or joint operation of flights is a cooperation between airlines allowing the operation of a destination by several carriers.
 
One of the airlines is charged directly to the flight and the other company, his partner on the chosen destination, has the right to sell seats on this flight with its own international code of airline.
