With her lush turquoise waters and secluded stretches of golden sand, there is an increasing consumer demand in travelling to this Indian Ocean retreat and the new Emirates service will be able to transport an extra 153 passengers to Mauritian shores.
There was a feeling of excitement and prestige at the Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport recently whereby Emirates officially signed a 10-year commercial cooperation agreement with national carrier Air Mauritius.
The first Emirates A380 flight to Mauritius was greeted in traditional Mauritian style with the words ‘Hello A380’ forged in the shallow waters of the Blue Bay Reserve Marine Park by as many as 100 native Pirogue fishermen.
Luxurious holidays to Mauritius are all about five-star hospitality, escapism and relaxation and with Emirates’ flagship craft now operating a daily service to this destination, the entire travellers package is likely to be met with envy.
Before the Mauritius service was established, Los Angeles was the 23rd route to be added to Emirates’ A380 portfolio and Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam now rubs shoulders with the likes of London Heathrow, New York JFK, Paris Charles de Gaulle and numerous other world class global cities.
Emirates Airline’s Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer, Thierry Antinori said “Our A380 service to Mauritius means passengers from key markets such as London, Paris, Moscow and Shanghai, flying via our hub in Dubai, now have the chance to experience a seamless Emirates A380 experience including the world class service and product across First Class, Business Class and Economy Class for which the airline is renowned.”
