Posted 17 August 2018 · Add Comment

The Wuhan route will be served by an Airbus A340 in a 34 business class and 264 economy class configuration.

Air Mauritius will operate as a charter on this route with committed high load factors.

The company started operations to China in July 2011 with a weekly flight to Shanghai.

Air Mauritius now serves the Chinese market through its hubs in Shanghai, Hong Kong and Singapore. In addition to Wuhan, it also operates charter flights on Chengdu.
 
“We are expecting high load factors from Wuhan, which will constitute a significant boost for tourist arrivals from China. This is a high potential market within which we are constantly exploring new opportunities. It is in line with our vision to leverage on our strategic position between Asia and Africa, to capture the growing flux of traffic between the two continents.” stated Somas Appavou, CEO of Air Mauritius.
