Air Mauritius Amsterdam Service: The insurance policy of the Mauritius Tourism Industry
Air Mauritius has started twice-weekly operations to Amsterdam today the 26th of March 2018. The flights will operate on Mondays and Fridays with an Airbus A 340 with 34 Business and 264 Economy Class seats. A third weekly flight will be added on Wednesdays during the peak months of July and August.

The flights will be operated in collaboration with KLM Royal Dutch Airlines and Air France. To recall, KLM kicked off these joint operations in October 2017 with three weekly flights between Amsterdam and Mauritius.

“The start of operations to Amsterdam is part of our plan to develop a second hub in Europe. Many of our key routes have been built on the strong historical ties we share with the countries we operate to. Our history with the Netherlands is more than four centuries old. Mauritius was indeed named after Prince Maurits of Nassau, during the Dutch settlement in 1598. Today Schiphol Airport, the home base of our partner KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, gives us access to 50 code share destinations all over Europe. We expect Amsterdam to develop into an important hub in our network, particularly for passengers from Nordic and East European countries. This will contribute to boost tourist arrivals to Mauritius”, stated Somas Appavou, CEO.

Air Mauritius’ main hub in Europe is Paris from where it offers nearly 40 code share destinations in Europe, with partner Air France. Air Mauritius and the Air France/KLM group have built close ties over the years, Air France having been an important partner indeed since Air Mauritius was incorporated in 1967. In 1998 the two airlines signed a collaborative agreement to jointly operate the Mauritius – Paris route. This agreement was extended and reinforced in 2008 and 2014.

The Mauritius – Amsterdam schedule
Air Mauritius will operate 2 weekly frequencies on Mondays and Fridays throughout the Northern Summer of 2018. A third flight will be operated on Wednesdays during the peak period corresponding to July and August

Air Mauritius will serve China and increase flights to Madagascar
New test on China for Air Mauritius. After an assessment, the national aviation company decided to replace the Mauritius-Guangzhou service with a flight to Wuhan, a city in the center of the country.

The first flight will take place on July 6th.

The Airbus A 340-300 will do this route once a week. "In preparation for our annual budget, we made an assessment of routes served by Air Mauritius. It was after this analysis that we decided to abolish the flight to Guangzhou and replace it with that on Wuhan," said Somas Appavou, General Manager of Air Mauritius.

Guangzhou is the capital of Guangdong Province in southern China, home to 13 million people. For its part, Wuhan is the capital of Hubei Province, with a population of 10 million. Market studies that have been done in collaboration with Chinese operators have revealed a demand on this destination."The operators are confident," says Somas Appavou.

Flights to China are not the only ones that will change. In Madagascar, for example, Air Mauritius is negotiating with the authorities to increase flights to this destination. "We would ideally want flights to Madagascar seven days a week," says Somas Appavou. Currently, the national airline operates five flights between Ivato Airport and Mauritius.

Other changes to be expected include flights to South Africa and India. Air Mauritius hopes to be able to operate more flights to these destinations during high periods. "We would like to operate three flights to Cape Town and four or five flights to Durban during peak periods," said the Air Mauritius general manager. For the time being, the national aviation company provides only two weekly flights between Mauritius and Durban.

On destination India too, Air Mauritius wants to operate at least one more flight per week during the most requested periods. At this moment, the frequency is four flights per week

SITA to keep Air Mauritius’ new Airbus A350 fleet connected to key systems on the ground
Air Mauritius, the flag carrier of Mauritius, will now have SITA's wireless technology on the ground, keeping the new-generation aircraft connected to the vital back-end systems no matter where they fly. In October 2017, Air Mauritius introduced the first two new-generation Airbus A350 aircraft with a further four expected to join the fleet over the next few years. The Airbus A350 is one of the most advanced aircraft flying today. It brings with it a unique complexity with large data exchange in its own unique protocol – Media Independent Aircraft Messaging (MIAM). This is designed to exchange large amounts of data between the aircraft and ground systems using multiple communication channels.


At the gate, SITA’s wireless connectivity allows the Mauritanian airline to quickly and securely exchange vital aircraft information generated during flight with both the airline’s own systems as well as with Airbus and IBM. At the same time key information ahead of the next flight can be uploaded, including passenger and flight information. This connectivity allows for rapid exchange of aircraft information which will help Air Mauritius speed up aircraft turnaround times while ensuring seamless management of the aircraft’s systems by ensuring complete connectivity globally. “These new aircraft have become flying data centers which rely on world-class connectivity in order to exchange information on everything from engine data, passenger requirements to updates at the destination. This requires reliable, fast connectivity no matter where the aircraft finds itself. At SITA we are working with airlines globally to support that connectivity and ensure that the full benefits of connected aircraft can be unlocked."


A total of 30% of airlines are already operating connected aircraft within their fleet and 73% of airlines will either operate or have taken delivery of connected aircraft in the next three years, according to SITA Air Transport IT Insights 2017.

“Kenya Airways is working towards strengthening its network and consolidating Nairobi’s position as a leading hub in east Africa. The networks of both our airlines are complementary and we are confident that this agreement will allow us find the synergies for us to grow our respective networks.” said KQ’s group managing director and chief executive Sebastian Mikosz.

Air Mauritius has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Ghanian government over the provision of expertise in the establishment of a new Ghanaian national carrier. The agreement was signed in Port Louis last week following a visit by Ghana's Minister for Aviation, Cecilia Abena Dapaah, and her team. During the week-long stay, Dapaah held talks with Air Mauritius executives following which the preliminary agreement was signed on Thursday, August 31. Ghana is said to have also agreed on a business plan for Air Mauritius to expand in Africa. Presumably, this means the use of Accra to some degree or other.
For its part, Ghana is in the process of reestablishing a new national carrier aimed at developing the West African state's domestic, regional, and international connectivity. It is expected to launch by 2019. Earlier this year, Dapaah confirmed talks with both the Mauritians as well as Ethiopian Airlines(ET, Addis Ababa) over the role of consultants in the project. Ethiopian is already established in the region through ASKY Airlines (KP, Lomé) and tentatively, through Nigeria's Arik Air (W3, Lagos).

We can’t agree more, it’s time to forsake the crowded swimming pools of the Mediterranean and head for the beautiful uncrowded beaches of Mauritius, which incidentally was the last place on earth man observed the long extinct, flightless Dodo bird.
