Domestic travel between the islands of the Seychelles is expected to be easier following the opening of a new domestic terminal at Seychelles International Airport in Mahé.
The development includes a larger floor area, new check-in and baggage areas, arrival and departure lounges, drop-off and pick-up areas and security posts. The new terminal also has a spa, two restaurants and five shops. A pharmacy is also planned.
The new terminal is a two-minute walk from the international terminal.
At the opening ceremony, Minister of Tourism, Civil Aviation, Ports and Marine, Didier Dogley, said that over 60% of foreign visitors to Seychelles also travelled to other islands. “A significant number of these visitors connect directly to other islands for their vacation as soon as they land at the airport.”
