The extra flight, which supplements the existing
double-daily Airbus A380 services, will boost seat capacity to and
from Mauritius by approximately 35% and will help the airline cater to the surge in
one of the busiest travel seasons.
The additional flight will also provide around
30-40 tonnes of cargo belly-hold capacity for businesses, further
opening global trade lanes through enhanced import and export
HH Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman and
Chief Executive, Emirates Airline & Group said, “We thank the
Mauritian authorities for considering our request to operate a
third daily flight. Air connectivity is critical to international
tourism, and these extra seats will help us bring even more
visitors from across our network to Mauritius, and accommodate
rising demand. 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.”
The airline first started operations to Mauritius in
September 2002 with thrice weekly flights.
