Emirates increases flights to Mauritius
Dubai, September 14, 2011
Emirates airline will introduce two additional flights between Dubai and Mauritius to support the growing number of tourists to the paradise island, increasing the service to 11 weekly flights.
The 10th frequency will be launched on November 4 while the 11th weekly flight will start on December 6, increasing the existing capacity by 22 percent per week, the airline said in a statement.
“We are standing by the destination at a time when the international outlook for travel is uncertain,” said Majid Al Mualla, Emirates’ senior vice president, commercial operations, West Asia & Indian Ocean.
“Our decision to introduce these extra flights is the result of our long-term partnership with the island. We wish to thank the Government of Mauritius for its trust in Emirates”, he said.
“We value our partnership with Emirates and welcome the announcement of the additional flights. We look forward to develop joint campaigns so that both parties may benefit fully from this partnership,” said Robert Desvaux, chairman of the Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority.
The increasing number of GCC-based tourists to Mauritius will welcome the enhanced capacity to one of their favourite holiday destinations as they will have more travel options and better connectivity, Emirates said. – TradeArabia News Service
