AIR MAURITIUS SET TO LAUNCH NON STOP FLIGHTS TO SHANGHAI
Come January 24th Air Mauritius will start nonstop flights between Port Louis and Shanghai, using an Airbus A340 aircraft, dropping the stopover in Kuala Lumpur en route.
Flights to Shanghai, via KL, commenced in July last year and helped to increase the number of Chinese visitors to Mauritius by nearly 40 percent since then. Following a detailed market analysis the airline therefore decided that nonstop flights would best serve this fast growing market and needless to say is the island’s hospitality sector excited about the prospects of generating more business from China, as the traditional markets of Europe continue to remain weaker than hoped for. The new nonstop flights will operate out of Port Louis every Thursday and Sunday, returning the next day and passengers will have convenient connections also to La Reunion, Madagascar and to South Africa. Happy landings.
