the Minister responsible for Home Affairs and Transport in a bid for all concerned parties to sit together to discuss the way forward. Subsequently to a letter sent to Condor by Minister Morgan, Alain St.Ange, the Minister responsible for Tourism and Culture was mandated to meet with Condor during the ITB Tourism Trade Fair in Berlin.
In Berlin Minister St.Ange accompanied by Sherin Naiken, the CEO of the Tourism Board and Bernadette Willemin, the Tourism Board’s Director for Europe met with Herwig Oberhuber Head of Planning & International Relations and Dr Jens Boyd, the Director Group Long-Haul & Director Group Revenue Management for Condor. In a second meeting Minister Alain St.Ange and his delegation met with Arne Kirchhoff, the Director Airport Relations & Ground Handling Procurement at Condor.
Both meetings gave the Minister the opportunity to discuss with Condor the points raised by Minister Morgan in his letter written to them earlier. “The meetings were important for Seychelles, we needed to be reassured of not only the consolidation of the Condor flights to Seychelles, but to also put on the table the possibility of encouraging Condor to increase the frequency of the flights to Seychelles” said Minister St.Ange.
A follow up of the Berlin meeting has now been held in Seychelles where the Ministry of Home Affairs and Transport, Ministry of Tourism and Culture, the Seychelles Civil Aviation Authority, the Seychelles Tourism Board, Air Seychelles and SEYPEC (Seychelles Petroleum Company) all sat together with Herwig Oberhuber and Dr Jens Boyd of Condor who had flown into the country for the Saturday meeting.
