Air Mauritius Re-Ups With Air France


In 2008 Air Mauritius signed an important deal with Air France that allows the two airlines to engage in code sharing; an agreement which helped to boost traffic on both airlines, as tourists used them for their travel between France, Mauritius, and Reunion Island. That deal has been extended according to sources close to the two airlines. How long the extension goes into the future has not been disclosed.


Code sharing allows Air Mauritius to use Air France to transport its Europe-bound passengers to their destinations from Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris. It also enables the airline to bring Air France passengers from Reunion Island to Mauritius while those passengers still earn Air France rewards. Likewise, similar conditions are in place enabling Air France to use Air Mauritius flights to complete travel arrangements for its passengers. The combination of the two airlines working together has resulted in 18 flights between Paris and Mauritius every week during the peak travel season.


Nine of those flights are operated by Air Mauritius using an Airbus A340, while the other nine are made using a Boeing 747 from Air France. Another 12 flights are provided by Air France to and from Reunion Island. Capacity is reduced on the Reunion Island run during the Indian Ocean's off-season.


With the extension of the agreement more French travellers are able to take advantage of Mauritius holidays with easy and convenient flight schedules. Some experts believe the cooperation between the airlines is one of the contributing factors resulting in France providing more than 60% of the annual arrivals to the island. Of course, one can't forget the historical ties France has with the entire Indian Ocean region. That connection is still alive and well not only in Mauritius, but also in Reunion Island, the Seychelles, and the Maldives.


As for Mauritius itself, the tropical island destination continues to be one of the all-time favourites for European travellers. Statistics suggest she came close to 900,000 arrivals last year and might be on target to reach 1 million in 2012. Increased airline capacity, hotel and resort development, and a concerted effort to promote Mauritius at the international level have all contributed to encourage more Europeans to visit. Even now, the Mauritian tourist industry is hard work to make sure their success continues.


If you've never been to Mauritius, you've never experienced a true tropical paradise quite like it. Awe-inspiring views, crystal clear waters, majestic mountain peaks, and indigenous flora and fauna are all things you need to experience to fully understand. In addition to great natural surroundings, the luxury hotels and resorts on Mauritius also do an outstanding job of making guests feel very welcome. Between five star accommodations, world famous dining, plenty of water sports and other activities, and an ambience that invites romance, Mauritius is indeed one of the best places in the world to holiday.
