Emirates set to launch second Mauritius A380 service

Emirates has announced it is to operate its twice-daily flights to Mauritius using A380s exclusively from December 1st.

The route is currently serviced by one A380 and one B777, and switching to two A380s increases the airline’s capacity on the route by 19%.

Orhan Abbas, Emirates senior vice-president, commercial operations, Latin America, Central and Southern Africa, said: “Our daily A380 service to Mauritius has enjoyed exceptional popularity since its launch on 16th December 2013, with more than 150,000 passengers having flown our flagship aircraft to the island. The launch of a twice-daily A380 service to Mauritius will further strengthen our support for the country’s tourism industry and we are certain that hoteliers and operators will welcome this initiative.”

Emirates currently operates services between Dubai and Mauritius as part of a codeshare agreement with Air Mauritius.
