Did you know? You can fly direct to Mauritius (on Air Mauritius) from 25 different airports on 4 continents around the world.

The Mauritian airline currently runs one of the youngest commercial fleets – 12 planes with an average aircraft age of 8 years. In 40 years of operating they’ve never had a single incident, and they’re one of the few airlines in the world that have combined commercial flights with helicopter flights, using 3 Bell Jet Ranger helicopters.

The logo that adorns Air Mauritius’ fleet is the Phaeton Rubicola or ‘Paille-en-Queue’ - a fish-eating tropical bird. While the Dodo bird is iconic to Mauritius, it was probably a no brainer that it would never become the logo for the Air Mauritius fleet – the Dodo is firstly extinct, and secondly unable to fly!
