Air Asia announces plans for flights to Mauritius

MORE FAR EAST AIR LINKS COMING TO MAURITIUS

(Posted 28th April 2016)

It has now been confirmed that Air Asia will launch an initial four flights a week between Kuala Lumpur and Mauritius, effective October this year.
The Mauritius Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Tourism Xavier-Luc Duval made the announcement earlier in the week, also confirming that a new era of promoting the island as a tourism destination has now taken root in earnest, following the removal of former MTPA, short for Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority, boss Karl Mootoosamy.
Meanwhile is Mauritius also working towards establishing the island as a main stop over point for traffic from the Far and South East into Africa, which will of course very much depend on African mainland countries permitting fifth freedom flights allowing for traffic uplift from and to Mauritius enroute to give any flights additional loads.
The arrival of Air Asia though will break new ground and allow for direct trade and tourism links between not just Malaysia and Mauritius but also from across the Air Asia network which is expected to generate traffic via the airline’s hub in Kuala Lumpur to the Indian Ocean island.
