We are extremely pleased that we can now share this wealth with the Bulgarians who will have direct connection with Seychelles, thanks to our joint project.”, commented Andre Butler-Payette, CEO Manager of 7South.

Therefore, we are happy that we have succeeded together with our partners Marbro Tours, Exotic Holiday and Planet Travel Center, to take this important step and launch the direct flights. We hope this will give a boost to the travel agencies in Bulgaria, who will be able to add another unique destination to their portfolio,” said Petar Stoyanov, founder of Luxutour.

We hope that with the launch of direct flights, more and more of our compatriots will be able to enjoy this paradise.
