Air Austral launched Vanilla Island air pass


(Posted 09th April 2014)

Air Austral, the home airline of Ile de la Reunion with their base at the Roland Garros International Airport in the island’s capital of St. Denis, has yesterday launched an air pass which, in combination with a long haul ticket to Reunion now allows passengers to visit some of the other spectacular islands which form the ‘Vanilla Islands’ of the Indian Ocean.

Ticket prices range from between 45 Euros to 90 Euros per sector and the destinations listed under the arrangement are Mauritius, Madagascar (Antananarivo Nosy Be and Tamatave), Mayotte, Comoros and the Seychelles and the maximum duration of a journey across the islands was given as one month. Children between the age of 2 – 12, traveling with their parents will be charged at a fare of two thirds of the adult fare. The deal is valid only on services operated by Air Austral.

This latest offer, enticing tourists to embrace the Vanilla Islands concept and take advantage of a visit to Reunion to travel to more than just one island, could have a significant impact in terms of visitor numbers for the region. Travelers from outside the European Union are advised however to ascertain Visa requirements for Madagascar, Comoros and Mauritius, with the Seychelles of course renown for their open door policy of NOT requiring any Visa from tourists, no matter their nationality.
