New schedule of flights between June and October 2022 set up to meet demand from Spanish and Portuguese markets
(Port Louis, 20 October 2021) Avoris has announced that it will launch a weekly flight to Mauritius in June 2022, which will run through to October.
The leading Spanish travel group is returning to Mauritius for a fifth operation in order to meet demand from Spanish and Portuguese consumer markets. Flights will be from Madrid, and will use the Iberojet A350-900.
Avoris follows a number of other major airline providers in ramping up services to Mauritius. In recent weeks, demand for travel to the paradise island has surged, following the reopening of its borders to international travel which coincided with the loosening of travel restrictions in many of Mauritius’ key markets.
Travellers are choosing Mauritius for its beaches, mountains and lagoons but also for its safety and security. Mauritius has had one of the best Covid responses in the world and has a first-class health system. As it stands, 80% of Mauritius’ adult population is fully vaccinated.
David Torrado, Director of Product and Contracting at Avoris, said:
“I am confident Mauritius has the right products for our Spanish and Portuguese markets. We shall be back to Mauritius in 2022 after our four successful operations prior to the pandemic.
We plan to operate weekly flights using Iberojet A350-900 from Madrid from June to October 2022.
I am most thankful to the Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority and Hotels Partners for their valuable support and looking forward to our successful collaboration & partnership in order to achieve planned objectives.”
Mauritius is on the cusp of its summer season, which starts in November. This is the perfect time of year to enjoy Mauritius’ world-renowned beaches, as well as other outdoor activities including hiking, kitesurfing and various other water sports.
Nilen Vencadasmy, Chairman of Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority, said:
“We are delighted that Avoris has announced it is restarting flights to Mauritius next year.
This is yet another signal that demand for travel to Mauritius remains very strong, and gives us great confidence that we will fulfil our target number of arrivals for the next 12 months.”
Phillipe Hitié, Executive Chairman at SummerTimes, said:
“Avoris is committed to Mauritius. This is indeed excellent news for our destination, at a time when we need to relaunch our tourism industry”.
Since 1st October, vaccinated travellers to Mauritius have been free from quarantine on arrival providing testing requirements are fulfilled. Unvaccinated travellers must complete a 14-day in-hotel quarantine.
