Air Mauritius is back in Australia

Mauritius national carrier Air Mauritius has resumed its twice-weekly flights to Perth after an absence of more than two years.

Air Mauritius’ Airbus A330-900neo 3B-NBU arrived earlier this week following a six hour and 55 minute journey from Port Louis. The aircraft was on the ground for four hours before returning to Mauritius.

Air Mauritius first started direct flights to Australia in December 1991 and announced plans to resume the Perth route in April 2022, more than two years after flights were suspended due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Two flights a week will operate between Perth and Port Louis. The airline will fly from Port Louis to Perth on Tuesdays and Saturdays, returning to Mauritius on Wednesdays and Sundays.

“We are excited to be welcoming Perth back to our growing network and we look forward to connecting thrill-seeking leisure travellers with Australia, Air Mauritius Chief Commercial Officer Laurent Recoura said in a statement. 

"Mauritius has proved itself to be a world-in-one island. Its exotic blend of French, African, Chinese and Indian culture, white beaches, and exhilarating adventure make it a great destination for Australians. 

"This is also the opportunity to make up for lost moments and embark on a memorable journey while reconnecting with friends and relatives.” 

“The new route will also allow us to provide connectivity to travellers from Australia to Mauritius and the rest of the world. The direct connection not only represents the best and fastest way to travel to Mauritius, but also allows passengers to benefit from Air Mauritius’ international network and reach beyond destinations in Africa, Europe, Asia and the Indian Ocean islands.”

# Air Mauritius celebrated its 55th anniversary this year. It operates direct flights to eight destinations in Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, and the Indian Ocean islands.
