From 2nd December Emirates will fly double daily to Mauritius from Dubai

“The increase in frequencies will undoubtedly create more opportunities for the Mauritian tourism sector and local economy,” said Ahmed Khoory, Emirates’ Senior Vice President, West Asia Indian Ocean. “The island destination is very popular throughout our network and double daily flights will offer even more flexibility to travellers.”

In January this year, Emirates and the government of Mauritius signed an agreement aimed at jointly promoting the island destination across the airline’s global network. The two parties have engaged in the development of a series of joint activities to increase the visibility and awareness around the island in the 126 destinations to which the airline flies.

“The island destination is an important one for Emirates. We have committed ourselves towards promoting Mauritius and we will drive our efforts in this direction as the island becomes more accessible,” added Ahmed Khoory.

A total of 964,642 tourists visited Mauritius in 2011, an increase of 3.2% over the previous year. European tourists accounted for 63.2% of total tourist arrivals.
