ABU DHABI Oct 11 Abu Dhabi Airports Co and the
Seychelles government have signed an agreement to redevelop the
international airport at Mahe, officials told a news conference
in the United Arab Emirates on Tuesday.
Abu Dhabi will help fund the redevelopment, Seychelles
Minister for Foreign Affairs and Transport Joel Morgan said at
the event without giving any further details.
The oil-rich emirate and the Indian Ocean island already
have transport ties; most notably, Etihad Airways owns a 40
percent stake in Air Seychelles.
