Published on : Monday, March 6, 2017

Air MauritiusMauritius has started planning to introduce flights that would connect the Indian cities of Kolkata and Hyderabad after the airliner obtains permission to be operational in more cities of India.

 

Vinith G, Air Mauritius manager, India and South Asia told the media on Sunday that Kolkata and Hyderabad are currently the two new cities for which Mauritius has planned connectivity. Presently, they are permitted only four cities and they would be flying from Chennai, Bangalore, Mumbai and Delhi.

 

He said that the island country had been incapable of connecting these two cities on account of certain bilateral restrictions.

 

Once in two years, bilateral connectivity negotiations is conducted. Right now, Air Mauritius links the Indian cities with Mauritius. Vivek Anand, country manager, Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority (MTPA) said that demonetization did have an adverse impact on the tourist flow to the island nation that had increased by 10% in the last few months.

 

But then, he added that the tourism department of the country was expecting double digit growth for the current year.

 

Last year, as many as 83,000 Indians had visited Mauritius and it accounts for seven percent of the total tourism arrival to the island nation.
