Air Mauritius to resume flights to Delhi from May 3
Air Mauritius resume direct flights to Delhi, on May 3, after a gap of three years.
The flagship carrier of Mauritius will resume its direct operations with biweekly flights using the Airbus A330 aircraft in a Business and Economy class configuration with a capacity of 254 seats.
Air Mauritius currently operates six weekly direct flights to Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport in Mumbai.
To mark the resumption of direct flights from Delhi to Mauritius, Air Mauritius, in association with the Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority, organised a Networking Gala Evening at Hotel Imperial, in Delhi.
“We are excited to resume our operations to Delhi after three years of absence,” said Krešimir Kučko, CEO, Air Mauritius.
“Both India and Mauritius are united by culture, ancestry, language and geography,” Kučko noted.
This April, Air Mauritius is commemorating its 50 years of presence in India.
“New avenues are being explored with Air India to offer seamless connectivity via Delhi as well as Mumbai to/from several destinations in India,” said Kučko.
Arvind Bundhun, Director of the Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority, said the long-awaited flight from Delhi to Mauritius is a major milestone facilitating travellers from the northern part of India to commute.
“We are thankful to Air Mauritius for this initiative which will boost demand. We foresee a steep rise in the footfalls on our land,” Bundhun said.
