Emirates to Launch New Route Linking Madagascar and Dubai via Seychelles Starting September

Emirates has announced the launch of a new route to Madagascar, starting from September 3, 2024. This new service will offer travelers more choices and connectivity, promoting both tourism and business travel to this country with spectacular landscapes.

Flights EK707 and EK708 will connect Dubai (DXB) to Antananarivo (TNR) four times a week, with a stopover in the Seychelles (SEZ). Flight EK707 will depart from Dubai at 8:55 AM and arrive in Mahé at 1:35 PM, before continuing to Antananarivo, where it will land at 4:50 PM. The return flight EK708 will depart from Antananarivo at 6:35 PM and arrive in Mahé at 10:20 PM. It will then depart Mahé at 11:50 PM for Dubai, where it will land at 4:20 AM the next day.

Enhanced Connectivity for Madagascar

This new Emirates service will offer connectivity to over 140 destinations in the airline’s global network, thus supporting the strategy of Madagascar’s Ministry of Tourism to diversify target markets and introduce international travelers to the island’s many natural attractions.

“Madagascar has always been underserved, despite growing interest from travelers seeking authentic ecotourism experiences,” said Adnan Kazim, Emirates’ Chief Commercial Officer. “We are confident that this new service will have a positive impact on Madagascar’s connectivity, offering more opportunities for travelers to discover this hidden gem, while also opening new international business opportunities.”

The Malagasy government also welcomed the launch of this new route. “This route will showcase Madagascar’s incredible tourist and cultural treasures to the world, while creating new business opportunities,” said H.E. Valery Ramonjavelo, Malagasy Minister of Transport and Meteorology.
