About Air Mauritius
Air Mauritius is the national airline of Mauritius, a small island nation located in the Indian Ocean. It was founded in 1967 and has its headquarters in Port Louis, the capital city of Mauritius. Air Mauritius operates scheduled flights to various destinations around the world, including Africa, Asia, Europe, and Oceania.
The airline initially started with a small fleet and limited destinations but has grown over the years to become a significant player in the aviation industry. Air Mauritius has been recognized for its high standards of service and has won several awards for its inflight experience.
In recent years, Air Mauritius has faced some financial challenges, including a significant loss in 2020, which was exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic’s impact on the global travel industry. As a result, the airline went through a restructuring process and sought government support to stabilize its operations.
