If you want to experience sitting on an award-winning airline, try flying with Air Mauritius, 7 time winner of the "Indian Ocean Leading Airline Prize”! As the fourth largest carrier in Sub-Saharan Africa, it has an important standing in the European, African and Indian Ocean region markets and also has the position of flag carrier to Mauritius. With 46 years of history and 26 different destinations to its name, Air Mauritius has only a small fleet of 12 planes. However, this lack of aircraft is solved with Air Mauritius' many codeshare agreements with other airlines such as Air France, Emirates, Malaysia Airlines, South African Airwaysand Virgin Australia Airlines -- do not be surprised to find yourself boarding a plane with Air France livery even though you have booked a flight with Air Mauritius!
Air Mauritius has lounges at Mauritius International Airport and Hong Kong International Airport for flyers with Air Mauritius. Though Business Class ticket holders can access the lounge for free, Economy Class ticket holders will only be charged a minimal fee. The lounge has WiFi access, a chlidren’s play area as well as a bar and buffet dining corner. Additionally, Air Mauritius offers a range of helicopter services to take you directly to your hotel or provide you with a unique way to discover Mauritius! Air Mauritius wishes all passengers the best travelling experience with an aerial view of the place.
