Creation of an Air Corridor Between Mauritius and Changi Airport-Singapore

Quote:
Enhanced Air Connectivity Will Make Mauritius a Gateway to Asia

Mauritius will become a gateway to Asia through Singapore for the islands of the Indian Ocean and countries of eastern and southern Africa as a result of the agreement signed on 14 October 2015 between Mauritius and Singapore Changi Airport.

In reply to a Parliamentary Question the Prime Minister, Sir Anerood Jugnauth, said that this 'Air Corridor' offers an exceptional opportunity for growth for Air Mauritius as it taps into the tremendous potential of traffic between Asia/South East Asia and Africa. The increase of frequencies into Singapore will dovetail with the Regional Airline project.

Given that Singapore's Changi Airport is the seventh largest international airport in terms of passenger and air cargo traffic, this agreement will allow the development of both passenger and cargo traffic between Singapore and Mauritius as well as between Africa/Indian Ocean countries and Asia/South East Asia, using Mauritius and Singapore as hubs, he said.

The Prime Minister outlined that on the west side of the corridor, Mauritius has already signed Memoranda of Understanding/Bilateral Air Services Agreements with the following African countries: Botswana, Comoros, republic of Congo, Egypt, Ethiopia, Kenya, Madagascar, Malawi, Mozambique, Nigeria, Rwanda, Seychelles, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

On the east side Memoranda of Understanding and Bilateral Air Services Agreements have been signed with China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Viet Nam. Mauritius is in the process of finalising a Memoranda of Understanding with Japan with a view to allowing its national carrier to extend its network coverage in Asia by code sharing with its partner airlines to market points in Japan.

This forceful move will have an enormous impact on the other sectors of the country and will promote trade, business and economic development, thereby catapulting Mauritius to the next stage of growth. Through promotion on international trade and business in the region Mauritius is poised to become a robust regional hub, he said.

No, it's an island in the South Western Indian Ocean, a bit close to Madagascar!

AirAsia to start services to Mauritius in October

Quote:
AirAsia X to make African debut in 4Q?




AirAsia X (D7, Kuala Lumpur Int'l) will likely make its African debut in October the Mauritian Minister of Tourism, Xavier-Luc Duval, has revealed.

"AirAsia [X] will connect Mauritius to Asia, probably in October," he told L'Express newspaper. "The airline will operate four flights per week to Kuala Lumpur Int'l, and anticipates bringing in at least 50,000 additional tourists to our island per annum."

Air Mauritius (MK, Mauritius) is currently the only carrier to ply the Mauritius-Kuala Lumpur market offering three weekly A330-200-operated flights as an added sector to its direct Singapore Changi service.

Currently, the AirAsia (AK, Kuala Lumpur Int'l) longhaul unit limits its operations to Australia, China, India, Japan, Nepal, New Zealand, South Korea, Saudi Arabia, and Taiwan. It also has US regulatory authority to operate flights to the United States which, despite announcing it would start Honolulu via Osaka Kansai flights in November, it has yet to carry out.

What a lovely airport.

Would love to see more direct flights from Australia. Would open completely new connecting routes to African countries and even Europe.

Hi Goschio,

Indeed, passengers from Europe and Africa to Australia and vice-versa are already using Mauritius as a connecting hub but not to its full potential. However all this will be subject to major changes soon.

The aviation authorities signed an agreement with Australia in February this year. Under this agreement, the designated airlines of both countries can operate up to seven weekly flights between Mauritius and Australia. Targeted Australian cities are Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney.
This is in line with increased connections also between Asia and Mauritius and into Africa.

However it's still not clear when the new routes will come into effect. Could be by the end of this year.

AirAsia X starts services to Mauritius

Quote:
AirAsia spreads wings to Africa


New thrice weekly service to Mauritius adds new continent to LCC's route map


AirAsia made its debut in Africa this week, when it started flying to the island of Mauritius.

The inaugural service, operated by long-haul carrier AirAsia X, touched down at Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport in Mauritius on Tuesday 4 October 2016, with a full load of passengers.

These included HE Issop Pattel, High Commissioner of Mauritius to Malaysia, and several top AirAsia X officials such as chairman Rafidah Aziz, group CEO Kamarudin Meranun, board director Fam Lee Ee and CEO Benyamin Ismail, along with Kathleen Tan, AirAsia’s president for North Asia.

“We’re very excited to be here today, charting a new continent on the route map of AirAsia X with a 100% full flight,” Ismail said upon arrival in Mauritius. “The strong entry into this market has given us the confidence we need to grow this direct flight between Mauritius and Kuala Lumpur.

“Together with our short-haul affiliate AirAsia Group, our guests can now fly into Mauritius from any of the destinations within our extensive flight network across Asia, Australia and the Middle East via Kuala Lumpur,” he added.

AirAsia X’s new service becomes the only direct connection between Malaysia and Mauritius. Flights will now operate three times a week, departing KL every Tuesday, Friday and Sunday at 1025 and arriving in Mauritius at 1325. The return services leave the island nation every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday at 0255 and arrive back in KL at 1420.

AirAsia X will serve the route using its 377-seat, two-class Airbus A330-300 aircraft, which features flat-bed seats in the premium cabin.

The launch of flights to Mauritius comes just a year after AirAsia started flying direct between KL and the Maldives.

No doubt, good for both tourism and business.

AirAsia has also made a request for 5th Freedom rights for operations onto Africa and the rest of the Indian Ocean region from Mauritius. However, not sure the government will allow this.

Its nice to have the concept of air corridor between Mauritius and Singapore/KL, but the reality is... Flights from Mauritius to rest of Africa is not affordable for most people on the continent. Unless airlines like Mango/Kulula/Flysafair flies between SA and mauritius to compete with SAA or Air Mauritius, I think the air corridor will just be a dream. I am surprised that they not flying AirAsia between KL and JHB. The market is bigger.
