According to the airline’s chief executive officer, Megh Pillay, “African economies have shown remarkable resilience to the global (financial) crisis. Their growth rates have been consistently higher than the global average. The expansion of our network on the African continent is a step to address the need for more air connectivity.”
The direct flight from Mauritius departs on Wednesdays and the return journey goes via the South African city of Durban.
In particular, Pillay stated that “these new flights will contribute to feeding the air corridor that links Africa and Asia via the hubs of Mauritius and Singapore”.
Several other international airlines fly into Maputo, including South African Airways, Ethiopian Airlines, the Portuguese airline TAP, Qatar Airways and Turkish Airlines.
