Emirates announces flights to new island destination

Emirates has announced that starting this year, they would operate a new route between Dubai and Madagascar.

Starting on September 3, 2024, the airline will expand its operations to the world’s fourth-largest island.

The flights, which will be operated via a linked service with the Seychelles, will operate four times a week to Antananarivo (TNR).

If you’re considering Madagascar for your next vacation, the new connection will make things much easier. Madagascar boasts lush foliage, long sandy beaches, and some amazing rainforest sections.

Emirates intends to bolster the nation’s tourism industry and economy by providing its Boeing 777 aircraft for this route.

The flights, which include eight first-class suites, forty-two business class seats, and 300 and six seats in economy, will run on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays. Tickets are now on sale online.

The aircraft will take off from Dubai at 8.55 am for the Seychelles and land in Mahe at 1.35 pm. It will then fly on to Antananarivo and complete the second leg at 4.50 pm.

Around 6.35 p.m., the return flight will take off from Antananarivo Island and arrive in the Seychelles at 10.20 p.m. The second leg will start at 11.50 p.m. from there and return to Dubai at 4.20 a.m. the following day.

“We’re confident that this new service will have a positive impact on boosting Madagascar’s connectivity, offering more opportunities for travellers to discover the hidden gem that is Madagascar, in addition to opening up new international business opportunities. Emirates understands the importance of providing customers with efficient connectivity and premium travel experiences.”

H.E. Manambahoaka ValĂ©ry Ramonjavelo, Minister of Transports and Meteorology, Madagascar, shared some of the events that tourists can enjoy while going to the country, saying: “This is extremely beneficial in more ways than one, since it opens a new door between Madagascar and the world through the Dubai hub, the biggest international hub in terms of passenger numbers.

Additionally, it will open doors for new industries and showcase Madagascar’s amazing tourist and cultural treasures to the entire world.

Adventurers have access to a variety of thrilling activities, including kite surfing, scuba diving, and whale watching, as well as thrilling land sports like hiking, trekking, and quad biking.
