Emirates To Serve Mauritius With Thrice-Daily Flights


(MENAFN- Bangladesh Monitor)

Dubai: Emirates has announced plans to up frequencies to Mauritius starting 1 October 2022. Now, the airline operates double-daily Airbus A380 services to this island destination. The additional evening frequency which will operate up till 31 January 2023 is in response to increased travel demand to and from Mauritius,

The third-daily flight will boost seat capacity to and from Mauritius by approximately 35%, catering to the surge in demand and providing added support to the tourism industry during one of the busiest travel seasons.

Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman and Chief Executive, Emirates Airline and Group said,“Emirates is committed to playing a key role to promote inbound travel, and support the government in achieving its goal of hosting 1.4 million tourists by June 2023.”

In May this year, Emirates renewed its MoU with the Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority (MTPA) aimed at jointly promoting the island destination across Emirates' global network. Mauritius is a very popular leisure destination, and continues to experience consistent growth post-pandemic.

In addition to carrying more passengers, Emirates' third-daily flight between Dubai and Mauritius will provide around 30-40 tonnes of cargo belly-hold capacity for businesses.

Emirates started operations to Mauritius in September 2002 with three weekly flights and currently is in its 20th year of operations to the Indian Ocean destination.
