Mauritius will be promoted worldwide with Emirates Airlines announcing last week that it would work to promote the island throughout its extensive flight network.
Emirates currently fly’s between Dubai and Mauritius 11 times a week – meeting up with flights from over 100 destinations all over the world, including Europe, Asia and India. A fantastic move for tourism in Mauritius
The move by Emirates to feature Mauritius as a destination of choice further strengthens the commitment Emirates has made to the island already by expanding Mauritius tourism further into Europe – the islands core tourism market.
For Australians – this means greater access on premium air product to the island and to the neighboring islands of Seychelles to the north.
Emirates fly out of Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth via Dubai to Mauritius and Seychelles.
Last week also saw major aviation news, with Etihad taking a 40% stake in Air Seychelles and providing a reported $26 million dollars in working capital. This comes just 5 weeks after Etihad took a controlling stake in Europe’s 9th largest airline, Air Berlin.
The region of the Vanilla Islands will benefit vastly from increased access to core tourism markets in Europe, as well as the two airlines further reaching scope with routes in and out of Australia.
Etihad fly to the Indian Ocean from Australia ex Sydney ( code sharing with Virgin Australia ), Brisbane and Melbourne.
