Mauritius’ national carrier, Air Mauritius, was recently honoured at the 2018 World Travel Awards, taking home five awards for the Indian Ocean region: Leading Airline; Leading Airline Brand; Leading Airline – Business Class; Leading Cabin Crew; and Leading Airport Lounge. The airline has been recognised as Leading Indian Ocean Airline a total of 13 times in the last 16 years.
In addition to the World Travel Awards it has received, Air Mauritius is also certified with the Skytrax 4-Star Airline Rating for the quality of the onboard product and service across both aircraft and cabin service operations, as well as its airport service standards. The 4-Star status puts Air Mauritius in another league – among the World’s top 40 Airlines.
Continually growing arrivals and flight services into Mauritius, as well as recognition of the national carrier as Leading Indian Ocean Airline for 16 years running are testament to the strength of Air Mauritius, as well as the fact that the island paradise remains a favourite holiday destination for tourists from across the globe.
Beyond the beautiful sea, stunning white sandy beaches and luxurious resorts and hotels along the coast of Mauritius, is a whole island waiting to be explored. From January to August 2018, tourist arrivals into Mauritius numbered 872,217, a 4% increase on the figure of 838,397 for the same period in 2017. The wide selection of accommodation and attractions, including the variety of cultural, culinary and sporting activities ensure this tropical island remains a destination of choice for many international travellers, as well as an extremely appealing home for the large number of expats who reside there.
