I am surprised that they not flying AirAsia between KL and JHB. The market is bigger.
The 'air corridor' actually is a long term strategy and will require adjustments over the course of the years. Example...the concept was launched in the first quarter of this year but MK and SIA signed a code-share agreement only last week.

Now you have a point in that flights between Africa and Mauritius are not affordable for majority of people. But MK is actually considering the creation of a low-cost subsidiary for operations onto Africa and the rest of the Indian ocean. But this will have to wait for the partial renewal of its fleet which will be completed by 2020.

Regarding AirAsia, their coming to the island dates back to a few years and came to fruition on the basis of a Government-To-Government MoU between Mauritius and Malaysia.
As I mentioned above, they have requested for 5th Freedom Rights for operations onto Africa and the other islands from Mauritius. However this won't be an easy one as it would mean direct competition for MK on its lucrative routes to South Africa, Madagascar and Reunion Island.
By the end of this year, we will have a better insight.

Mauritius to get second passenger terminal by 2020

This announcement was made by Pravind Kumar Jugnauth, the prime minister of Mauritius, during the cocktail ceremony on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of Air Mauritius on 11 August 2017.
Highlighting that Air Mauritius has played an important role to transform the air connectivity in the country, the prime minister said that the company helped in bringing Mauritius closer to its main markets, thus giving an impetus to key sectors of the economy.
Air Mauritius is the national carrier of Mauritius. The company aims to support the government policies in terms of connectivity with the rest of the world and in particular spurring the growth and development of a nascent tourism industry.
Jugnauth further stressed that the company will strengthen a renewal of fleet with the acquisition of two new airbuses A 350, one by the end of October 2017, and another one by the end of November 2017.
In addition, the company will have six additional airbuses in the next five years, aiming to provide quality services to the passengers.
Somas Appavou, CEO of Air Mauritius, said that the main challenge of the company resides in their capacity to break the glass-ceiling to transform Air Mauritius from a national carrier to become the leading and preferred airline in Africa.
He further mentioned that the company is planning to upscale its operation and services based on new business models.
Recently, the company has launched Air Mauritius foundation to promote arts and culture, conserve the natural heritage and environment and empower youths to contribute to the development of sports and education.
